Expand your on-campus or online science offerings

AMS Weather Studies is an introductory college-level course developed by the American Meteorological Society for implementation at undergraduate institutions nationwide. The course places students in a dynamic and highly motivational educational environment where they investigate the atmosphere using real-world current environmental data.

The AMS Weather Studies course package consists of a textbook, manual, portal (course website), and course management system-compatible files. You can use these resources to create an exciting learning experience for their students.

If you are an experienced science faculty or new to teaching meteorology, you can offer the course in traditional lecture/laboratory, completely online, or hybrid learning environments. Collegial assistance from AMS staff and other course teachers is available to new instructors.

If you would like to use the entire AMS Weather Studies course package, which includes the Textbook, Investigations Manual, and access to the RealTime Weather Portal and Faculty Websites, your college should submit a license to the AMS Education Program.
