Applied Meteorology

The Applied Meteorology
The Applied Meteorology (AM) is an interdisciplinary science undergraduate major that provides students with a variety of courses to understand the science of atmosphere and its application, interaction and affection in various production industries. The AM is widely acknowledged as  one of the best in the nation, based upon the caliber of its faculty and graduates as well as its comprehensive set of courses and rigorous requirements. An external Agrio-meteorological Committee, comprised of community leaders and alumni, provides guidance on its development. Students will be able to take challenging, cross-disciplinary courses that are specifically designed to provide a well-rounded education on the multitude of issues in agriculture and urban meteorology. Meanwhile, students who wish to complete the major in AM will work with their program advisor to decide on course selection and sequencing.
