Some top meteorology schools listed by the National Weather Service include Colorado State University, Florida State University and Iowa State University. These schools offer several undergraduate as well as graduate degree programs geared towards a career in meteorology, also known as atmospheric science.
The Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University, founded in 1962 by tropical meteorologist Herbert Riehl, offers graduate degrees at both the M.S. and Ph.D levels. Study programs include cloud microphysics, severe storms and mesoscale meteorology.
Florida State University has the largest meteorology undergraduate program in the Southeastern United States, offering a dynamic range of meteorology studies. Students may pursue a B.S. or B.A. degree in meteorology.
Iowa State University's programs include mesoscale/microscale meteorology, and their student chapter of the American Meteorological Society was named as the top such group in the United States two years in a row.
