Welcome to the Department of Meteorology & Climate Science, the only one in the entire CSU. We provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the atmosphere and we prepare them for careers in the atmospheric sciences. We have a newer emphasis on Climate Science. Meteorology faculty maintain active research programs that benefit the science community and enhance our students learning environment. 

What is a Meteorologist!

We work with weather and climate! Measuring it, forecasting it, studying it! This link to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics shows you what we do, how much we are paid, and job growth outlook. Did you know "Employment of atmospheric scientists, including meteorologists, is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations."?
