The Water Resources Graduate Program at OSU is organized into three degree areas:
- Water Resources Engineering (WRE)
- Water Resources Science (WRS)
- Water Resources Policy and Management (WRPM) or Concurrent JD/MS Degree Program (WRPM)
All Water Resources Program students are required to take three core courses which total 6 credits:
- WRP 507 Water Resources Seminar
- WRP 524 Sociotechnical Aspects of Water Resource Management
- WRS 505 and 507 Water Resources Seminar and Journal Club
The required Water Resources Program courses provide basic information about water resources issues and bring students together as a cohort. Each degree area also contains specific requirements and electives in addition to these core program courses.
To obtain a graduate degree in Water Resources, students will complete a course of study which satisfies the University requirements, as well as the specific degree area requirements. These are described in Water Resources Engineering - Checklist 1; Water Resources Science - Checklist 2; and Water Resources Management & Policy - Checklist 3.
For a list of courses fulfilling requirements and electives for the three degree areas see:
Water Resources Engineering - Table 1; Water Resources Science - Table 2; and Water Resources Policy & Management - Table 3. Decisions about the elective course of study will be subject to the approval of the student's major advisor and committee.
