Water, Society and Policy Degrees Program
The School of Natural Resources and the Environment now offers a Master of Science in Water, Society, and Policy (WSP). This program was developed because water sustainability is an emerging topic of importance, especially in the western United States. Water scarcity and conflict, due to a growing demand and competition for water, are issues that have broad reaching impacts for all people.
Water Policy Certificate Program
The University of Arizona has responded to the growing public and professional interest in water policy by establishing a new Graduate Certificate in Water Policy. The Certificate builds on the world-renowned expertise of UA faculty and programs in all aspects of water resources.
Water Policy Class
The WRRC Director, Sharon Megdal, teaches a three-unit spring graduate course titled Arizona Water Policy. This course is cross-listed in four colleges and five degree programs and has attracted students with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. Listed in the colleges of engineering, law, agriculture and life sciences, and social and behavioral sciences, the course has attracted students from a variety of programs. These programs include soil, water and environmental sciences, hydrology and water resources, planning, geography, agricultural and resource economics and arid lands studies.
Grants & Internships
WRRA 104 Grants
Established by the U.S. Congress with passage of the Water Resources Research Act in 1964, the water resources research institute program provides support for one institute at the land grant university in each state, plus 3 territories and the District of Columbia. Congress reauthorized the Act in 1984 with amendments and, most recently, in 2006, in PL 109-471. The Water Resources Research Center at the University of Arizona is the designated Water Resources Research Institute for the State of Arizona.
