SUNY Oneonta's M.S. in Lake Management curriculum trains students to become effective water resource management professionals. This innovative program blends scientific training in aquatic biology, limnology and quantitative skills with professional training in project design, management, and reporting in a real-life setting, working with lake stakeholders directly or with established lake management professionals.

The program takes full advantage of the natural resources and infrastructure at the college’s Biological Field Station near Cooperstown, NY, and a newly renovated science building on campus. Degree recipients will have met the requirements to apply for certification as a Certified Lake Manager (CLM) or Certified Lake Professional (CLP) by the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS).
