Careers in Meteorology

Where can I get an education in meteorology?

There are numerous colleges and universities throughout the United States and the world where you can earn a degree in meteorology. The American Meteorological Society publishes information on this in its “Curricula in the Atmospheric, Oceanic, Hydrological and Related Sciences,” which can be accessed online at The U.S. military also provides training to interested recruits. Online and correspondence courses may be found, too, but these should be viewed more for informational purposes and not for a formal education, unless the online courses are provided by a degree-conferring, accredited university.
