Hello! I am a current student in the Geosciences Learning program at MSU and I hope I can offer you some helpful information regarding this program.
When I first signed up, I was advised that it is necessary to complete the certificate program first in order to complete the full bachelor's program. However, after your first 12 hour credits after enrollment, you can formally be entered into the major program while completing both your certificate and degree. The coursework consists of your typical classes that focuses on operational met and broadcasting met, also includes intro to physical and world geography, severe weather, emergency planning, etc. The professors are very helpful and the advisor is also helpful in setting up your courses and answering any questions you may have about your coursework.
That is pretty much the summary of what this program consists of but if you have any specific questions, you can ask away and I hope I will be able to help!
