Watersheds and Water Resources - Minor

By pursuing this interdisciplinary minor, you can learn the fundamental processes governing the transport and chemical evolution of surface and subsurface water of watersheds, important landscape features that control the biogeochemistry of natural waters. This minor provides elective and required coursework in earth sciences, resource management, wastewater treatment, and/or environmental planning. In this program, you can learn to apply fundamental concepts of chemistry, biology, geoscience, and landscape evolution to processes operating at the watershed scale. Learning objectives for the minor include excellence in written and oral expression, the ability to collect and interpret data from dynamic natural systems, and rigor in scientific thought.
