Because many universities do not have specific hydrology departments, it can be difficult for students interested in water science to know where to start. To help alleviate this problem, CUAHSI has created a list of graduate programs in water science for students to use to discover available options.

Don’t see your program on this list? CUAHSI posts graduate programs free of charge, and your university does not need to be a member to be included. To add your program, please complete this form.
