Combining broadcasting and forecasting

CMU gives students hands-on opportunities in first broadcast meteorology course

Contact: Emily Stulz

​The forecast calls for hands-on learning, as School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts faculty member Rick Sykes and meteorology alum Ahmad Bajjey co-teach Central Michigan University's first interdisciplinary broadcast meteorology course.

While earth and atmospheric sciences faculty prepare students to understand the science behind weather, Sykes and Bajjey prepare students to effectively communicate about the weather.

Key parts of the course include understanding the psychology of weather on viewers, creating weather graphics and building an effective story package.
