Oswego's meteorology major has a national reputation for producing professionals in the field. Meteorologists study the atmosphere and its physical and chemical characteristics and processes, weather patterns and climate. As the only state college on a Great Lake our location will let you experience and study weather phenomena like lake-effect snow and waterspouts.
We offer specialized study in synoptic and dynamic meteorology, meso- and micrometeorology, atmospheric and cloud physics, climatology, instruments and air pollution. An outstanding alumni network, labs and on-campus facilities and field experiences such as our Storm Chasers program make this program particularly strong.
