What courses will you take?
The B.S. in Meteorology & Atmospheric Science provides a solid foundation in chemistry, physics, biology, and mathematics and interdisciplinary understanding how the earth system works.
Sample courses include Earth Systems, Weather Patterns, and Satellite and Radar Meteorology. Many of our courses provide hands-on experiences through field trips, applied measurements in the field and analyses in analytical laboratories to measure major and trace elements and pollutants.
In addition to forecasting of weather, extreme events and climate, you will learn how to assess climate change impacts and climate variability and study air pollution sources, forecasting and control.
UMass Lowell offers the only atmospheric science/meteorology major at a public university in Massachusetts.
