Plymouth State University is launching a bachelor's degree program in climate studies. They say it's the only such program in New Hampshire, and one of the few nationwide. School leaders say the program will allow students to go deeper into climate science and prepare them for a variety of careers, including in emergency management, conservation, public policy, tourism and science journalism.
Lourdes Aviles is a professor of meteorology and the climate studies program coordinator. She spoke with NHPR’s Peter Biello about PSU’s hopes for the program.
