Broadcast Meteorology B.A.


The B.A. in Broadcast Meteorology is offered as an interdisciplinary study of significant breadth combining science and the arts. It is intended for students focused on a career in the media. Students electing this major will have the opportunity to combine their passion for meteorology with full development of their personal communication skills, both written and oral, appropriate to the intended career path. However, those students desiring an advanced, research-oriented degree in Atmospheric Science should pursue the B.S. degree instead. All students contemplating any of the curricula described herein should thoroughly discuss their options with the personnel of the Advisement Services Center (ASC) and an Atmospheric Science undergraduate adviser in the DEAS, before formal declaration of a specific major.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Meteorology is a restricted major. For advisement purposes, students should initially declare the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences B.A. as their major; they can subsequently apply for the Broadcast Meteorology B.A. by December 1st of a fall semester, while enrolled in A Atm 210, or by May 1st of a spring semester, while enrolled in A Atm 211. A minimum grade of B- is required in both A Atm 211 and A Thr 240 for acceptance into this major.
