Atmospheric Sciences


Professors Hennon (Chair), Godfrey, Huang, Miller

The Atmospheric Sciences Department offers a B.S. degree with three concentrations that prepare students for employment upon graduation or for further studies at the graduate level. The Broadcast Meteorology concentration prepares students for a career of communicating weather forecasts to the public using a variety of media resources, in addition to learning the basics of weather forecasting and analysis. Both the Climatology and Weather Forecasting concentrations fulfill federal Civil Service requirements for employment as a meteorologist. A Climatology concentration provides a strong preparation for graduate work with a specialization in climatology and mathematics. The National Climatic Data Center, located in Asheville, represents a unique resource for students. In the Weather Forecasting concentration, students learn the basics of weather analysis and forecasting and how to communicate meteorological information to the public. Students are encouraged to focus their career objectives through enrollment in cooperative education and internship courses.
