Research and Education

With world-class research facilities and internationally recognized faculty, DAES carries out critical research and provides excellent education, research opportunities, and trains students for jobs in both the private and public sector. At the undergraduate level the Department provides two distinctive degrees: a B.S. in Atmospheric Science, and a B.S. in Environmental Science. At the graduate level the Department offers both PhDs and Masters degrees in Atmospheric Science.

The academic programs also benefit from scientists in the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC), as well as the close proximity of the local National Weather Service (NWS), housed in the same building as ASRC.
