Hydrology, Minor College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences


The Hydrology Section of the Department of Land, Air & Water Resources offers a minor in Hydrology for environmental or natural science students who have an interest in water/environmental issues. The interested student should have completed preparatory course work in calculus (MAT 016B), chemistry (CHE 002A; CHE 002B recommended), physics (PHY 007A), and biology (BIS 002A). Course work in the minor provides fundamental skills and knowledge of the hydrologic sciences. The program is sufficiently flexible for students to pursue particular water issues or problems of interest to them.
