Atmospheric and Geological Sciences

The Atmospheric and Geological Sciences Department at SUNY Oswego offers students a wide range of unique and practical experiences that result in our graduates successfully finding diverse employment and acceptance to graduate schools after graduation.

Our students learn best from hands-on experience, and as a result, our students are regularly outside collecting data, making analyses and tackling real-life problems. The proximity to a diversity of world-class rock exposures and the regularity of exceptional meteorological conditions, combined with faculty highly active in research and eager to involve students, makes the undergraduate experience through this department one-of-a-kind. We believe that a strong classical background in the discipline combined with strong faculty student relationships make SUNY Oswego the ideal place to get a degree in this field.
