Requirements for the degree in Physics: Atmospheric Physics Track, and minor in Atmospheric Physics.


There are several universities across the U.S. with Atmospheric Science programs, but many cannot beat the Louisville area's various and ever-changing climate patterns. Louisville has seen snow on the ground one day - and 70 degrees the next... hurricane force winds... ice storm damage... major tornado outbreaks... along with everything in between. The rich weather history of Louisville makes UofL a perfect place to study atmospheric physics, climate, and space weather.
