Watershed Science

Program Description

The Watershed Science minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to serve the regional need for scientists with a strong background in water-related issues. It is a useful complement to environmental, physical and biological science majors, providing students in these fields with focused coursework. Combined with the relevant bachelor of science degree, plus additional calculus and physics courses, the minor satisfies the federal government’s requirements for qualification as a hydrologist. The proximity of Colorado Mesa University to the Colorado, Gunnison and Green Rivers and the drainages of the Colorado National Monument create an ideal location for the study of Watershed Science.
