The Environmental Hydrology subplan prepares students to solve practical hydrologic problems related to drought, flooding, and water quality. Hydrology is the science of water. Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences – Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources Emphasis at University of Arizona 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. They study pollution carried by water- including oceans, rivers, streams, rain, snow, and ice- and devise methods to clean and control it.

Some study weather- related problems such as flood forecasting, drought management, acid rain, and global warming. Others manage water resources so that the goals of all water users are achieved efficiently while protecting the environment.

Courses include:

  • Field Hydrology Methods
  • Risk Assessment for Environmental Systems
  • Fundamentals of Water Quality

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
