Undergraduate degree requirements are summarized below. Graduation requirements are a combination of rules imposed by the State of Florida, Florida State University, the FSU
You may graduate under any set of rules documented in the FSU General Bulletin that is in force while you are enrolled at FSU. That way, any course plan you make toward earning a degree is still valid even if new rules are enacted.
A bachelor’s degree in meteorology from FSU requires 120 semester hours, i.e., credits.
The last 30 credits must be earned in residence at FSU and at least 60 credits must be earned at an accredited four-year college or university. Most meteorology students earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. By taking 9 extra credits of history and humanities beyond Liberal Studies requirements, you can earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree.
Officially, freshmen and sophomores are guided by the Division of Undergraduate
