The Water Management and Hydrologic Science Master’s program in the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University uses a unique interdisciplinary approach to teach critical aspects of water management, conservation, and protection. The program prepares the next generation of water scientists, hydrologists, and managers who work in the private, public, and academic sectors to improve the availability, security, and reliability of human water supplies. It is a cross-disciplinary effort that incorporates courses from hydrology, environmental science, earth science, statistics, chemistry, ecology and evolutionary biology, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, chemical engineering, economics, computer science, and sociology. Graduate students develop strong technical skills and a broad understanding of hydrology and the interconnectedness of the biophysical, social sciences, and water management. The knowledge acquired is valuable to effectively manage water resources including best practices for policy redevelopment and long-term sustainability. In addition to the core courses, students will take a policy and ethics course and two interdisciplinary seminars.
