About the Water Resources Management Program

Water Resources Management (WRM) is an interdisciplinary program for graduate students to gain breadth in relevant planning and management areas as well as depth in an area specialty. WRM students do not conduct individual research projects. Instead, they participate in a summer group practicum/workshop with a water management focus. WRM prepares students to become professionals who can manage the complexities of increasing human demands for water to ensure its future availability and quality.

Additional Policy

In most cases Water Resources Management is unable to guarantee any funding to students. However, many of our students obtain funding through other departments on campus, and we recommend that students contact faculty or departments directly if they have teaching skills in specific areas. Individual faculty members occasionally have their own sources of support for project assistants, though we strongly urge students not to depend on these as guaranteed sources of funding.
