Geography—Meteorology Minor


Program Overview

The meteorology minor offers coursework in basic meteorology, meteorological observations, and forecasting, including a series of synoptic and mesoscale meteorology courses. The minor provides students with meteorological knowledge for related fields such as aviation, atmospheric chemistry, oceanography, or geology that will ultimately benefit them in their future careers. Students who wish to be employed full-time as a meteorologist should major in meteorology rather than seek a minor.  The minor is open to all undergraduates except those enrolled in the Geography: Meteorology major.
