The School of Forestry & Environmental Studies offers masters and doctoral degrees in water resources. Teaching and research programs reflect faculty expertise in aquatic chemistry, biometeorology, economics, environmental policy and law, hydrology, water resource systems analysis, and watershed management.
Thesis and dissertation projects are tailored to each student's background and interests and may center on field-based research, laboratory-based research, or computer modeling. The Center for Coastal and Watershed Systems serves as a focal point for studies conducted in forested and urban watersheds, freshwater tidal wetlands, and salt marshes.
Available resources include the Center for Earth Observation, which offers advanced capabilities in remote sensing and GIS, and an analytical instrumentation laboratory operated by a full-time manager.
