The Atmospheric Science Certificate provides a rigorous foundation in the workings of the atmosphere allowing students to study variability in and understand changes in the modern atmosphere. The curriculum of this program will provide an understanding of atmospheric processes, both past and present, and their impacts on natural ecosystems and society through studies in climate and weather variability and biosphere-atmosphere interactions.
This is an embedded undergraduate certificate open to any major.
1. Students will demonstrate understanding of fundamental processes involved in weather systems and climate change.
2. Students will demonstrate mastery of visualization and analysis techniques to examine data relevant to atmospheric science.
3. Students will analyze how processes in atmospheric science can impact society.
