What makes a Penn State Meteorology degree world class?

  • A diverse and rigorous program that's produced top-notch graduates for 75+ years. Yes, we’re bragging a bit, but ask around!

  • Research opportunities that could pair you with a faculty member and lead to publishing a paper in a professional journal as an undergraduate!

  • “Real world” experience through student organizations such as Campus Weather Service where you'll prepare forecasts for newspapers, radio stations and the web, as well as videos in the Chromakey. Also join the Storm Chase Club and chase storms for part of your summer -- safely and responsibly of course!

  • The opportunity to attend professional conferences hosted by the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. A large contingent of our undergraduate students attend these meetings each year. What an experience!

  • If you have a passion for weather, climate, or the environment, as well as strong math and physics skills, we hope you will apply!
