Atmospheric sciences and meteorology is the 251st most popular degree in America, with 652 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #252 Chinese Language and Literature, and narrowly lost to #250 Genetics.

The degree is offered at a total of 79 colleges across the nation, and is the 206th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 8% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 86% of colleges offering atmospheric sciences and meteorology are public making it a very accessible field.

The southeast produces the most atmospheric sciences and meteorology graduates, largely led by University of South Alabama, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New York ranks highest, with particular help from SUNY College at Oswego and Stony Brook University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more atmospheric sciences and meteorology graduates than University of Alabama in Huntsville, which graduated 36 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study atmospheric sciences and meteorology). More students studied atmospheric sciences and meteorology as a percentage of total students at Northern Vermont University than any other college.
