The Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences offers a minor in Meteorology to majors in any field except meteorology. This program provides a means of recognition for students in related fields, especially Science and Engineering, who are interested in application of physical principles to the atmospheric environment.
Admissions and Certification of Minor
To be admitted to the program, a student must have a GPA of at least 2.0. Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based upon the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. Go to Add a Minor to apply. The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program. Paperwork for certification should be completed no later than during the registration period for the student’s final semester at NC State.
