B.S. in Meteorology to M.S. in Aviation

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Meteorology (BSMET) and Master of Science in Aviation (MSAV) degrees.

Upon completing the BSMET requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MSAV degree. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of "B" or better must be earned.  If a grade of "C" or "F" is earned in any of the graduate courses taken in lieu of the elective courses in the BSMET degree, the student will be removed from the MSAV program and may continue to complete the BSMET degree only.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the MSAV program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the B.S. in Meteorology, any MSAV transition courses used to meet graduation requirements will be noted as undergraduate courses for the purpose of graduation.

Approved Courses for the Combined Option

Students enrolled in the combined option must consult their academic advisor and the MSAV program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Students will spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study and then, during their senior year, will be allowed to take up to three 500-level graduate courses from the MSAV core courses and/or MSAV specialization and will replace an equal number of Open Elective courses in the BSMET degree.
