Environment Hydrology/Water Resources

Hydrology is the science of water. It deals with the origin, distribution, and properties of water on Earth and other planets. Hydrologists work to solve water- related problems. They consider water use from a variety of perspectives- social, economic, legal, scientific, and environmental- to determine how differing viewpoints affect the quality and quantity of a community's water supply.

Undergraduate Degrees Offered
Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

Curriculum
The hydrology curriculum is designed to give the student a basic knowledge of hydrology and allied subjects, including the basic environmental sciences, hydrologic modeling, and computer applications. Flexibility is offered through the selection of general education courses (Tier One and Tier Two), core electives, technical electives, and specialty options. The faculty offer expertise in the areas of hydrometeorology, hydrogeology, environmental chemistry, environmental hydrology, water resources engineering, water resources engineering-systems, and water resources engineering-policy.

Career Options
Students who graduate with a degree in Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources are prepared for many careers: environmental consulting, remediation consulting, state/federal regulatory agencies, water resource design, evaluation and protection, flood forecasting, control and management, computer simulation of water and pollutant transport, graduate school in science or law.
