Climatology Minor

The minor lets students broaden their expertise in weather and climate studies. Students who will be working for any industry or agency that depends on understanding weather and climate change will find the minor useful. Students take courses in meteorology, atmosphere, and biometeorology. Electives are in climate models, climate variations, climate change, and atmospheric boundary layer. To complete the minor, students must complete at least 20 credits.

All minor requirements must be taken A-F (unless only offered S/N), and students must earn a grade of at least C- in each course in the minor.
