My ultimate goal at the end of my studies is research. My current goal is to explore different areas of meteorology and decide which one works best for me.
With a combination of a meteorology major degree and a geology minor degree, I could work as a meteorologist, hydrologist, geologist, environmental scientist, or anything else related to those two areas of study. I'd like to hope that having that flexibility will create more opportunities for me later on than I would have otherwise. I also plan to get some kind of graduate degree, so that could increase my chances of getting hired upon final graduation. My plans after graduation are and will remain very flexible for some time. I don't have plans to become a broadcast meteorologist, but everything else is fair game at this point. However, I will try to direct whatever I go into toward my final plan, research, and hopefully that's what I end up doing.
