About Us

Since 1974, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences has developed a well-known and respected pre-professional program, initially as part of Lyndon State College, and now as part of Northern Vermont University-Lyndon.

We believe hands-on practice and real-world experience are the best ways to learn about weather and climate. Students have diverse experiential learning opportunities. We teach and conduct research in a facility that was specifically designed for our department.
