Photo Gallery: New Meteorology Major Generates a Storm of Interest

Although the meteorology major in the college’s geography department is only weeks old, student interest has been swirling like a cyclone since July 2011, when the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia approved the new bachelor of science degree program to begin in January 2012. Many students have expressed interest in the program and more than 30 have switched to the new major, the first meteorology degree offered in the state. Six of those students are already on track to graduate in May. “There’s a lot of pent-up demand,” said Bill Carstensen, department head. “Many geography majors are becoming meteorology majors.”
