  • The following prerequisites completed (with C's or higher) by end of the spring semester:
    • 11:670:101 Introduction to Meteorology
    • 11:670:102 Introduction to Climate Science
    • 11:670:211 Meteorological Analysis
    • 11:670:212 Computational Methods for Meteorology
    • 01:640:151152 Calculus for Mathematical and Physical Sciences
    • 01:640:251 Multivariable Calculus
