Course Description

They offer a single, traditional track, well grounded in science and mathematics, along with elective courses. With usually only 15 to 35 students in both major courses and other required science and mathematics courses, students benefit from working closely with a very dedicated and professional faculty.

Plymouth State University Meteorology students have both a demanding curriculum and a wide variety of opportunities to broaden their experiences. Our students have been very successful in competing for national scholarship and research programs for undergraduates. Many also complete internships.

The Meteorology program from Plymouth State University prepares you to continue professionally or academically in nearly any field of meteorology or atmospheric sciences. Over 80 percent of our meteorology alumni from the last 10 years are currently employed as professional meteorologists or in graduate school.
