On the Reno campus, graduate work leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. in Hydrology and Hydrogeology is principally focused under the University's Interdisciplinary Program of Hydrological Sciences. Students completing core requirements in the Interdisciplinary Program received degrees entitled "Hydrology" or "Hydrogeology." A detailed description of the program can be found at www.hydro.unr.edu. Additional degrees are offered through individual colleges participating in the Interdisciplinary Program in the fields noted. The Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering Geological Sciences and Engineering Department (M.S. and Ph.D.) offers work in hydrogeology and environmental water quality and water geochemistry; the College of Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering (M.S. and Ph.D.) offers work in hydrology, hydraulics, and water resources engineering; and the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Science (M.S.) in forest and range management.

On the Las Vegas campus the University offers an M.S. Degree in Geology, with an emphasis in Hyrogeology. The Geosciences Department offers course work in surface and groundwater hydrology, soil physics, water geochemistry, water quality, isotope hydrology, and hydrologic field and numerous techniques. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, School of Engineering, offers work in soil mechanics, channel flow, and fluid mechanics. Course work in aquatic biology, limnology, and plant and animal ecology is offered in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (M.S. and Ph.D.) The Water Resources Management Program offers course work in water policy and management (M.S.).
