Graduate Programs at Oregon State University

Water Resources Program

The Water Resources Program at Oregon State University awards M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and brings together faculty and students from six colleges and multiple departments. Students will draw from a set of existing OSU courses covering engineering approaches, watershed processes, and/or water resources management and policy. The Program includes core requirements for all students with additional work concentrated in one of three specific degree programs: Water Resources Engineering - Students enrolled in this degree program will be broadly trained to undertake life-long careers in water resources system design, and will have the option to focus on groundwater, surface water, or watershed engineering. Water Resources Science - Students enrolled in this degree program will be broadly trained in water resources while maintaining an intellectual affiliation with a secondary field. Allied fields include ecology, forest science, geology, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, climatology, geomorphology, soil physics, geochemistry, public health, and microbiology. Water Resources Policy and Management - Students enrolled in this degree program will be broadly trained to undertake careers in managing water resources and in guiding or making water resource policy decisions.
