Atmospheric Science/Meteorology

Within atmospheric science/meteorology, students can select elective courses to focus their study on weather forecasting, research, environmental monitoring, and specialties within those areas. The Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) Department has a low faculty-to-student ratio, which allows students to have a lot of one-on-one interaction with their professors. All undergraduates are encouraged to take part in research.
