Master of Science in Water Management and Hydrological Science

Program Chair: Thomas McDonald

Program Coordinator: Raquel Granados Aguilar

The Water Management and Hydrological Science (WMHS) graduate degree program is supervised by an interdisciplinary faculty from multiple department and colleges. The faculty have expertise in the bio-physical, geo-chemical, management, public health, social sciences and engineering fields. The program offers two masters’ degrees (thesis and non-thesis options) and a PhD. The curriculum is designed to allow students to become leaders in their focal areas of water while making connections with colleagues in other related disciplines.

The Master of Science (MS) degree is designed to complement students' undergraduate discipline by obtaining scientific, technical, or managerial expertise in water science. The minimum requirement for the MS degree is 32 credit hours. Students complete 8 hours of WMHS courses, 12 hours of water courses, one research methods course and one statistics course. Students may opt to add an additional course in lieu of some research hours. Completion of a thesis is required for the MS degree.

Graduate research assistantships are available on a competitive basis.
