The Atmospheric Sciences Department offers a B.S. degree in two concentrations that prepare students for employment upon graduation or for further studies at the graduate level. Both 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.
