Oregon State University offers MS and PhD degrees in Water Resources Science and Water Resource Engineering, and an MS degree in Water Resources Policy and Management. In addition to core courses in the program, over 30 University departments participate in delivering coursework that serve as electives in the program. A seminar series is offered each term, co-sponsored by the Institute for Water and Watersheds (IWW:Oregon’s USGS affiliated Water Resources Research Institute) to bring in nationally and internationally-known speakers, and to provide a forum for discussion of current/controversial water resource issues. In conjunction with the seminar, a journal club is offered each quarter to read and discuss articles related to the weekly seminar. The program sponsors an active student chapter of the American Water Resources Association, the Hydrophiles, that helps promote water resources research, education, and social events to build community around water-related topics. The IWW newsletter H2OSU, is a vital communication resource of current issues, seminars, conferences/workshops, research opportunities, and job announcements for faculty and water resource minor students.
