|Field of Study:||Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology, General
|Description:||At the undergraduate level, the Department offers a broad range of courses and degree programs. The study of atmospheric science is based largely on physics and applied mathematics. Consequently, the programs are structured. All required courses, except those at the introductory level, generally have prerequisites or corequisites in physics, mathematics, and atmospheric science. One of the goals of the discipline is to develop the understanding necessary to improve our ability to predict the weather, but atmospheric science is more than weather forecasting. Another important area of study focuses on the possible changes in global climate caused by the changing chemical composition of the atmosphere.
