The Watershed Science minor addresses land use hydrology and sustainable watersheds through a set of core courses and engages students in experiential learning in a watershed field course. The program offers a broad and flexible selection of additional coursework options that emphasize physical, biogeochemical, and societal aspects of water resources and watershed management. Students can select the combination of courses that best fits their interests and complements their major.
