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 Water Management and Hydrological Science (MWM) degree is a non-thesis degree designed to prepare students for careers in the critically important areas of water management. It is structured to enhance problem solving using technical and managerial skills. The degree incorporates principles from economics, engineering, management, policy analysis and science and requires a comprehensive final exam. This approach provides students with the education and training to contribute to advancements in managing water quality and quantity for the world, the nation, and the State of Texas.

The minimum requirement for the MWM degree is 30 credit hours. Students complete 8 credit hours of WMHS courses, 12 credit hours of common body of knowledge water courses, and 10 credit hours of water courses.
