The Hydrology program at University of Arizona is designed for students with interests in the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the hydrologic cycle, as well as water resources systems, environmental studies, or water policy and the social sciences related to water resources.
Students may concentrate in one or a combination of these fields but should acquire some proficiency in all aspects of hydrology and water resources. Research-based Ph.D. study programs are individually planned to meet the student's special interests and professional objectives.
Ph.D. applicants should have completed a Master of Science degree with a major in hydrology, water resources, environmental sciences, environmental engineering, or a related field. (Holders of a Bachelor’s degree cannot enter the Ph.D. program directly.)
All Ph.D. students are expected to acquire basic computer programming skills and complete a field methods-field synthesis course sequence. To meet the professional development requirement, Ph.D. students are required to attend departmental seminars and colloquia at the beginning of academic residency and to make two formal seminar presentations (minimum one oral presentation) of their own dissertation research at two professional conferences at or near the end of their academic residency. A presentation at the department's annual student research symposium, El Dia del Agua y la Atmosfera, satisfies one of these requirements.
