About the Program

The Bachelor of Science program in Atmospheric Sciences addresses the needs of students interested in studying meteorology or climate science. The program provides students with an in-depth knowledge of the physical characteristics, motions and processes of air; as well as the interactions of this protective layer with the underlying oceans and continents. The undergraduate program emphasizes a systems approach, combining traditional atmospheric sciences with emerging fields. In particular, the program focuses on the fields of tropical meteorology and oceanography that are directly linked to the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding coastal regions where the university is strategically located. More information about these programs can be found in the university's online catalog.

Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Demonstrate a broad understanding of atmospheric sciences
  • Analyze and interpret a variety of weather and climate data
  • Communicate atmospheric science information effectively at the undergraduate level, in oral and written form, with appropriate use of technology
