Water Resources

The term “water resources” is used here in the broadest sense: the study of how water moves through, and interacts with, natural systems; its chemical and biological components; and the physical, social, economic and legal aspects of human interaction with the water cycle.

Over 50 faculty in 13 departments in six colleges are currently involved in the program. The program will train students to address complex water resources issues by building disciplinary depth in concert with interdisciplinary breadth to understand focused problems and communicate across disciplines. We strive to educate scientists and engineers to be more politically aware and policymakers to be more scientifically knowledgeable.

To accomplish this objective, the program is designed to offer the following degrees:

Most courses are offered via the Internet. Applicable courses may also be taken through Engineering Outreach at the 400- and 500-level. Supporting courses in mathematics and in probability and statistics are available. Courses used to satisfy degree requirements must be approved by the program director.
