Welcome to the ULM Atmospheric Science Program!

We are a dynamic and growing program. The School of Sciences is home to the Atmospheric Science degree which is designated by the Board of Regents as a Program of Excellence.  

The ULM Atmospheric Science program is dedicated to providing a transformative STEM education that prepares students to compete, succeed, and contribute in the atmospheric sciences and related fields. This is accomplished through experiential classroom instruction, providing student research opportunities to expand their knowledge beyond the classroom, and opportunities for students to serve their local community and the broader atmospheric science community.

P3 with students

Many of our recent graduates are working as forecasters for private businesses, the National Weather Service, and the military or have pursued graduate school and research careers. Some are also working as broadcast meteorologists, environmental consultants, and math or science teachers. Over the past year, several current students have been selected for paid research experiences funded by NASA and NSF or been hired as paid interns at the National Weather Service, television stations, and private sector forecasting firms.

You may contact Dr. Anne Case Hanks (casehanks@ulm.edu) or Dr. Todd Murphy (murphy@ulm.edu) if you would like to learn more about our bachelor's degree program, minor option, or careers in the atmospheric sciences!
