San Antonio – Meteorology is the scientific study of the atmosphere that allows for weather forecasting. The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) offers the only Bachelor of Science degrees in Meteorology and Broadcast Meteorology from San Antonio to Brownsville in South Texas.
The UIW Meteorology programs provide a comprehensive liberal arts education that prepares students for entering a wide variety of professional careers as well as graduate programs in weather modeling and forecasting, air pollution studies, broadcast meteorology, hydrology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications in meteorology, and education.
Students who complete the course requirements in Broadcast Meteorology will fulfill the educational requirements necessary to earn certification through either the American Meteorological Society (AMS) or the National Weather Association (NWA).
The Meteorology program philosophy seeks to develop an appreciation of the Earth's fragile atmosphere in each student through education and understanding of the Earth's atmosphere. The program offers the knowledge and skills needed to investigate adverse human impact on weather and climate, and recognize how to remediate or avoid these conditions to support the needs and requirements of all life on our planet. Experiences in research activities through course work, seminars, and internships also promote self-realization and spiritual guidance acquired through independent work, volunteered endeavors, and cooperative learning within each student.
