Education: White says that each institution is different, but you can expect to take calculus, calculus-based physics, calculus-based chemistry, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, linear algebra, statistics, and, of course, meteorology.
Salary: "It depends on whether you go into government or the private sector," says White. Entry-level salaries in government can be around $25,000; private sector salaries can start as high as $40,000. A weathered (pun intended) meteorologist can have a salary in the six figures. White advises, "It's a good idea for a meteorology student to pick up the math minor; which is only about six credits more [than what you'll need to take], and a computer science minor. That way you are well rounded, have more to offer, and your starting salary will be near the higher end."
