How people use and manage water is the core concern of water policy. Although the scientific and technical aspects of water issues are essential, the social and political aspects are now our larger challenge.

The Water Policy (Certificate NDP) course at University of Arizona offers breadth and depth of education. The Certificate is intended for two different and complementary groups of people who want to build their expertise in water policy: working professionals and UA graduate students. There is flexibility in both course selection and schedule, to meet the specific needs and interests of a variety of students.

The program is interdisciplinary. Although there are some administrative details that differ between working professionals and UA graduate students, all people admitted to the program must fulfill the same substantive requirements.

Department

Graduate students in the School of Geography and Development (SGD) benefit from the broad range of faculty expertise and strong links to interdisciplinary research centers across campus.

Our work spans the discipline, from physical geography (climate science, dendrochronology, remote sensing, spatial science), to human-environment (political ecology, water policy, climate change) to human geography (development, state theory). Our shared commitment to collaboration and community makes for a lively and engaged department.

Courses include:

  • Economic Evaluation of Water and Env. Policy

“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?”​
