About Us

Since 1974, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences has developed a well-known and respected pre-professional program at the Lyndon campus (first as Lyndon State College, then Northern Vermont University-Lyndon, and now as Vermont State University.)

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.


The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon Department of Atmospheric Sciences provides a high-quality educational experience to students who are passionate about weather and climate. We do so by offering a modern curriculum that integrates theory and hands-on learning in a supportive environment. We value challenging and helping students as they focus their education among a broad range of career interests.
