2012MIN30 - Water Science Minor

Program description

Increasing pressures from population growth, climate change, and other human activities are severely impacting the quality and quantity of water on a global basis. Tomorrow's scientists will require a keen understanding of factors pertaining to the biology, chemistry, hydrology, and scarcity of our water resources. The minor provides students the opportunity to broaden their expertise in the area of water science. Students must complete at least 18 credits for the minor.

Note: Students interested in qualifying as a hydrologist should determine the exact requirements for the Minnesota civil service position by checking the Hydrologist I (Hydrogeology) and Hydrologist I (Water Resources) position descriptions.
