Certified Broadcast Meteorologist - Radio Broadcast & Freelance On-Camera (TV) Meteorologist at The Weather Channel
A graduate degree is not required for some jobs in meteorology (i.e. broadcast meteorologist, meteorologist at the National Weather Service) but there are other meteorologist positions in and out of the private sector which may require a Masters degree. Meteorologist positions at energy companies and universities usually require an advanced degree. It really depends on what kind of meteorologist you want to be. It's up to the employer and what qualifications they are looking for in an employee. You can't go wrong with a higher degree but there are a good deal of meteorology jobs which don't require one.
