Topics in GEOL 290, HONS390, PHYS298, 390, 399, 412, 420 and 499 must involve meteorology and must be approved by the meteorology concentration program director. Many of these courses require prerequisites which will not count towards the concentration unless they are on the list above. A minimum of three Physics courses are required to obtain a concentration. Students must notify the meteorology concentration program director prior to graduation to receive credit for the concentration on their transcript. The College requires a minimum 2.0 GPA in the courses which comprise the concentration. The College also requires that at least nine hours in the concentration at the 200 level or above must be earned in residence at the College of Charleston.
