About the Concentration in National Weather Service/Military

If you, like many of NVU-Lyndon’s atmospheric sciences program alumni, are driven to pursue a career with the National Weather Service (NWS), the National Weather Service/military concentration is a great way to focus on achieving your goals.

The NWS is the largest employer of forecasters across the country. In addition to forecasting, Lyndon graduates have also pursued careers within the NWS related to hydrology, IT, management, and operational research. Lyndon graduates can be found in NWS offices all over the country. Our graduates have also successfully pursued forecasting careers in the military. Many have enlisted in the armed services while others have landed civilian jobs.
