Our undergraduate major has been designed to teach broad-based knowledge in meteorology, oceanography, climate and air pollution. We offer small class sizes, outstanding teachers and mentors, and an active student organization. With our proximity to Washington, D.C., we are close to co-op, internships, summer and full-time job opportunities as well as museums; music, art and sports venues; and much more.
