Our concentration in operational meteorology not only meets but exceeds all recommended American Meteorological Society guidelines for undergraduate students. In the operational meteorology concentration, students learn the basics of weather analysis and forecasting and how to communicate meteorological information to the public.
We are one of the only undergraduate institutions in the United States with a program in atmospheric physics. With the growing demand to understand the science of climate change along with the interdisciplinary nature of modern atmospheric science research, there is growing demand for programs which integrate atmospheric science and traditional physics. Our program in atmospheric physics is designed to help meet this challenge by preparing undergraduates for graduate study in atmospheric physics.
Our Meteorology program at College of Charleston offers both a demanding curriculum – grounded in physics, mathematics, and atmospheric science – and a wide variety of opportunities for students to broaden their interests based on the research interests of our faculty. Furthermore, because of our low student-to-faculty ratio, students benefit from working closely with a very dedicated and professional faculty.

Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
