We are a dynamic and growing department. Our teaching and research areas include Atmospheric Sciences, Earth Science & Geology, GIS & Remote Sensing, Human & Physical Geography, Physics, Physical Science, and Regional Archaeology. Our department is home to the Atmospheric Science degree which is designated by the Board of Regents as a program of excellence.
Many of our recent graduates are working as forecasters for private businesses, the National Weather Service, and military or have pursued graduate school and research careers. In addition, a few of our recent graduates are math or science teachers, broadcast meteorologists, or environmental consultants. Over the past year, several current students have been selected for paid research experiences funded by NASA and NSF or been hired as paid interns at the National Weather Service, television stations, and private sector forecasting firms.
