97th AMS Annual Meeting | 22–26 January 2017 | Seattle, WA

Discussion of AMS information statement on the Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Science

Tuesday, 24 January 2017, 12:15–1:15 P.M.; Room 604
view in conference program

Approximately every five years, the AMS develops guidance to university and college faculty and administrators responsible for undergraduate programs in atmospheric sciences. The guidance describes the curricular composition including pre-requisites and associated learning outcomes, faculty size, and facility requirements recommended by the AMS for an undergraduate degree program in the atmospheric sciences. The statement also provides information to help students prepare for various career pathways within the atmospheric sciences.   This past year, the AMS Council charged a working group to develop an update to the statement with input from the academic, private, and operational sectors. At this townhall, a draft of the new statement will be presented by members of the drafting team with an opportunity for comment on and additional input into the draft from townhall attendees
