MSc Hydrology – Non-thesis Option
The department offers a program leading to the Master of Science (Non-Thesis option) degree with a major in Hydrology – Non-thesis Option at University of Arizona.
|Full-time Duration:||1 year|
|Starting in:||August, January|
|Tuition Fee:||$10,063 per semester|
|Location:||Tucson, United States|
The faculty offers competence in hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry, hydrometeorology, hydroclimatology, environmental hydrology, ground-water hydrology, surface-water hydrology, vadose zone hydrology, mathematical and statistical methods in hydrology (including stochastic and numerical modeling), water resources systems, and water resources policy.
The Hydrology – Non-thesis Option at University of Arizona is designed for students with interests in the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the hydrologic cycle, as well as water resources systems, environmental studies, or water policy and the social sciences related to water resources. Students may concentrate in one or a combination of these fields but should acquire some proficiency in all aspects of hydrology and water resources.
Master’s Non-Thesis study programs are individually planned to meet each student’s professional objectives. Students in the Non-Thesis option are required to complete a Master’s Report (professional-level paper). (They are not required to complete a research-based Master’s Thesis.)
“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?”
