Mississippi State University

The M.S. degree in Geosciences with a concentration in Applied Meteorology is designed for individuals with meteorological, environmental, or hazards-related careers worldwide. The program was developed in consultation with representatives from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), the Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET), the National Weather Service and the Caribbean Weather Service.

To be admitted to the Applied Meteorology Program (AMP), one must hold a bachelor’s degree in a natural science from a four-year educational institution that has unconditional accreditation from a regional accrediting agency. An upper level course in Synoptic Meteorology (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for beginning the program of study.
