Ecohydrology, B.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered

Description


Ecohydrology is a cross-disciplinary science that integrates ecology with the hydrologic sciences by focusing on the interactions between components of the hydrologic cycle and the distribution, structure, function, and dynamics of biological systems.  The Ecohydrology undergraduate degree prepares students for surface water oriented careers in hydrology, watershed science, geographic information system applications for hydrologic analysis, water quality assessment, ecology of aquatic systems, and management and restoration. Students learn about the relationships between hydrologic mechanisms and ecological patterns and processes in watersheds and aquatic systems.  The curriculum  provides students with the option of meeting the requirements for federal positions as a hydrologist (OPM 1315 Series) and is designed to provide physical scientists with a strong secondary emphasis in ecology.  The degree provides theoretical and practical training, with students acquiring skills needed for 1) field investigations of water resources; 2) analysis and interpretation of data; 3) reporting, including writing and presentation; and 4) analysis using models, including application of geographic information systems.
