University Majors

University of California, Los Angeles
Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Environmental Sciences B.S.

The atmospheric sciences present a wide variety of problems of compelling scientific interest and increasing social concern. This is exemplified by efforts to improve air quality, depredations caused by severe storms and floods, attempts to control or modify weather phenomena, problems of long-range weather forecasts, climate change, and predictions, and expanding scientific frontiers into our outer atmosphere and atmospheres of other planets. The department offers a broad curriculum in dynamic and synoptic meteorology, atmospheric physics and chemistry, and upper atmosphere and space physics. The Bachelor of Science degree qualifies students for entry-level technical positions or rep-resents valuable background for training in other professions. Master of Science and Ph.D. degree holders work in universities, research centers, laboratories, and government services and, increasingly, in the rapidly burgeoning private sector.
