CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Have you ever thought about studying the weather? How about your son or daughter? Perhaps they've thought about becoming a meteorologist one day. The good news is, you have three options right here in North Carolina. Unfortunately no colleges in South Carolina offer a degree program in Meteorology. But within the Tar heel state you can pick from North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina Charlotte and the University of North Carolina Asheville. NC State offers all three degrees: Bachelors, Master's and PhD. UNCC and UNCA both offer Bachelors degrees and have excellent programs. I ran across this article featuring UNCA. It's excellent and it will give you a broader idea of what a formal education in meteorology looks like. Enjoy!
