The graduate chair or any other professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences may serve as a minor professor on a Ph.D. committee. The graduate chair will certify that the minor course requirements have been met.

The minor requirement is 9 or more credits of any ATM OCN course at or above the 400 level. Overall GPA for the minor must be at least 3.0.

ATM OCN courses assume a prerequisite background in college physics (two semesters), calculus (three semesters), and chemistry (one semester).
