Atmospheric Sciences Program

Internships for Atmospheric Sciences majors

Internships: Internships and research experiences are a critical part of the Atmospheric Sciences major and for the development of skills required within the meteorological or atmospheric sciences enterprise. The major requires the following:

Select one research or internship course (3 hours):
ATSC 3990: Internship in Atmospheric Sciences (3 hours)
ATSC 4911: Collaborative Research in Atmospheric Sciences (3 hours; offered as needed in summers)
ATSC 4960R: Faculty-Mentored Undergraduate Research I (1-6 hours)
ATSC 4970R: Faculty-Mentored Undergraduate Research II (1-6 hours)
ATSC 4980R: Faculty-Mentored Undergraduate Research III (1-6 hours)
ATSC 4990R: Undergraduate Research Thesis (1-6 hours)
GEOG 3990: Internship in Geography (3 hours)

While many of these internships and experiences occur during the summer, more and more are available during the academic year, either here at UGA, or off-campus, or online.
