The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.
Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee’s unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.

This minor can help you learn about meteorology or prepare you for future study or work.
The minor provides students with meteorological knowledge for careers in industry, private consulting firms, government, or the armed forces. This minor may benefit students planning careers in environmental consulting, public policy, economic planning, or risk management. Students who wish to be employed full-time as a meteorologist should major in Meteorology and Atmospheric Science rather than seek a minor.
Opportunities for Graduate Studies
A minor in Meteorology, in conjunction with a B.S. in a science or engineering field, may position a student to apply for graduate school in some scientific disciplines, including atmospheric science.
