Department Website

The MWR degree is designed to provide its students with a firm grounding in water resources that is applicable to any region. Entering students are assumed to have a basic proficiency in at least one water-related discipline (defined rather broadly) such as engineering, sociology, management, public administration, environmental studies, economics, law, chemistry, planning, political science, geology, geography, and biology, or professional experience in a water-related field.  The program seeks to expand and deepen students’ knowledge of their primary disciplines, provide them with an integrated perspective on water in nature and society, improve their capacity to think carefully and comprehensively, and develop their technical and communications skills.
