  • Course description
    The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in meteorology is designed to prepare a graduate for professional employment as a meteorologist, and meets the requirements specified by the federal meteorological agencies. A new graduate may be commissioned as a meteorological officer in the Air Force or Navy or appointed to a meteorological internship in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A few of our graduates have made careers in computer science (e.g., the former Director of the University's Computing Center).

    In addition to the fundamental courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, theoretical
    meteorology, instruments and observations, and analysis, students may complete their meteorological requirements in a number of ways, and may emphasize, for example, tropical meteorology, climatology, statistics, or computer applications. Forty-three credit hours are required in the major field selected from among not only meteorology courses but also from appropriate courses offered in engineering, geography, geology and geophysics, information sciences, mathematics, oceanography, physics, and soil
    science. Thoughtful advising promotes the advantage of the program's flexibility, while preserving academic standards. Whenever possible, we utilize courses taught in other departments, eschewing duplication and broadening the educational experience.
