Graduate Faculty

Faculty participating in the Water Resources Management Graduate Program (WRM) are affiliated with several different colleges, departments, and centers of UNLV and the NSHE. Researchers from governmental or private agencies may also participate as adjunct faculty. A list of participating faculty can be found at the website of the WRM Graduate Program at http://sciences.unlv.edu/wrm.

The Water Resources Management Program is a flexible, interdisciplinary course of study leading to an M.S. degree. It is a technically and scientifically based program that blends the physical aspects of the hydrologic sciences, in a broader sense, with policy and management issues in hydroscience. People with degrees in physical, biological, or natural sciences and engineering and those with degrees in the social sciences, management, environmental studies, or related disciplines are encouraged to apply to the program. Working together, the student and faculty advising committee will design specific courses of study or thesis topics such that all students will strengthen their understanding of hydrologic sciences and water management while also developing technical skills.

The Water Resources Management Graduate Program is housed in the College of Sciences and encourages multidisciplinary study and research with participating faculty at UNLV from the colleges of Sciences, Business, Urban Affairs, Engineering, and Liberal Arts and participating faculty at the Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies (HRC) on the UNLV campus, the Desert Research Institute (DRI), and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Adjunct participating faculty may also be with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS), Department of Energy (DOE), Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD), the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) or other governmental or private agencies.
