Because of the significant increase in knowledge regarding aquatic ecosystems dynamics, the formulation of management strategies, and the importance of this field of study to future management of our nation's surface water resources, the WSI created the M.S. in Watershed Science degree program at Murray State University. 


Utilizing each of the three WSI research centers (CSL, HBS, and MARC) the M.S. in Watershed Science is organized as an interdisciplinary program that provides students with a unique approach to watershed science. 

The program is designed around teaching and research resources of the WSI and will utilize the region's extensive aquatic ecosystems.
