Meteorology 670

Degree: B.S.

Director: Steven Decker (decker@envsci.rutgers.edu)

Program Webpage: http://meteorology.rutgers.edu

Meteorology is the study of weather and climate, of the characteristics, structure, and processes of the atmosphere. Students learn how to forecast the weather and how to understand climate change. The emphasis of the bachelor of science degree program is on developing a broad understanding of the fundamental physical and dynamic processes governing the motions and behavior of the atmosphere, and its interactions with the underlying land and ocean surfaces. Basic courses in chemistry, physics, and mathematics are the prerequisite foundation on which the meteorology program is built. Students who wish to pursue an undergraduate meteorology degree should have a strong high school or equivalent background in mathematics and the sciences prior to enrollment. This program meets all the U.S. federal government civil service requirements for classification as a meteorologist and the American Meteorological Society recommendations for undergraduate meteorology programs.
