Prospective Students

The student who wishes to obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree in Atmospheric Science may do so by following one of the two curriculum plans referred to as Concentrations. The options include Atmospheric Science, and Weather Broadcasting concentrations.

The BS in Atmospheric Science requires at least 120 semester hours with a university required minimum number of 45 upper-division hours. Students may have to take additional hours to meet university general education requirements such as First-Year Seminar courses. The major consists of at least 52 semester hours (24 upper-division), some of which may be designated courses outside of Atmospheric Sciences.

A prospective 8-12 physical science teacher could obtain a BS in Atmospheric Science while following the physical science education concentration. Details on the requirements for the physical science education concentration and for obtaining a teaching certificate are in the College of Science and Technology: Science, Mathematics and Technology Education section of the university catalog.
