The nationally recognized Plymouth State Meteorology program is one of very few in New England and the only one in New Hampshire. It offers students not only a high-quality curriculum in traditional and applied areas of meteorology and atmospheric science, but also a variety of experiential courses that include broadcast TV, weather seminar, research, internship opportunities, and others. The depth and versatility of the education received by graduates of this program allow them to either pursue advanced graduate study, or seek employment in the variety of operational and applied employment opportunities in meteorology and related fields, including in the rapidly growing private sector.
