Applied Sciences: Water Resources Management

The Water Resources Management program is an interdisciplinary and practical graduate program that prepares graduates for effective science communication, problem solving skills, entrepreneurship and technical innovation, in order to address the global challenges of water availability, quality and sustainability.

Individuals with a bachelor’s degree and a background in business, economics, planning, mathematics, science, or engineering are encouraged to apply to any of the PSM programs. In order to graduate, students must complete a minimum of 35 credit hours, which can be completed in one and a half years of full-time studies, depending on the degree focus area. The interdisciplinary nature of the programs provides not only deep knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological sciences applicable to urban systems, but it also builds skills in environmental policy, communication, business management, project management, ethics, and leadership.

All three PSM degrees are applied and allow working professional to bring their own professional experience into the program to advance or to re-tool.
