About

The School of Freshwater Sciences offers a graduate program of studies providing students with advanced training and education in four areas: Freshwater System Dynamics; Human and Ecosystem Health; Freshwater Technology; and Freshwater Policy and Economics. Each of these focus areas is interrelated with the others, and includes biologic, physical, technologic and policy aspects of freshwater.

Overview

The Master of Science program has two tracks designed to provide a strong foundation necessary for the training of graduates that will utilize novel approaches to the sustainable and equitable use and management of freshwater systems worldwide. The Doctor of Philosophy program is a research degree designed to explore and discover novel approaches to the sustainable and equitable use and management of freshwater systems worldwide. These programs will create an interdisciplinary atmosphere for training the next generation of scientists armed with the knowledge, skills and experience to anticipate and address the freshwater issues of the future.

Timely application is encouraged for students seeking financial support. When applying for admission, applicants should describe as completely as possible their specific research interests within freshwater sciences. Applicants are strongly encouraged to establish contact, before or during the application process, with Freshwater Sciences faculty members whose research interests are closest to their own, regarding the likelihood of one serving as the student’s major professor.
