METEO 395C Internship in Meteorological Operations (3 per semester/maximum of 6)
A student participates for at least 100 hours in an internship in an operational setting that focuses on the creation of time-sensitive meteorological products such as weather or climate forecasts. This internship is normally completed after the sophomore year. Given the focus of this internship and the paper requirement to relate the internship experience to meteorology coursework, students must have completed the first two required courses covering weather analysis or forecasting and fundamentals of atmospheric science. After the internship has been completed, the student writes a paper based on the contract posted on the Department of Meteorology website. This paper normally is evaluated by the student’s Meteorology Department academic advisor. The course grade depends on this evaluation combined with the assessment provided to the advisor by the student’s internship supervisor.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
