Summer 2006: MSU Online Professional Certificate for Watershed Management is now open for enrollment
All Virtual Watershed Management courses are delivered entirely via the Internet. We communicate primarily through email, Web talk, and weekly homework exercises.
Summer classes start May 15 and end August 18
Watershed management necessitates an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, with law, policy, community development and resource economics issues contributing as much to solutions as engineering, biology, hydrology and chemistry. An effective watershed manager must understand the science behind water resources management and have skills in public relations, policy-making, and program evaluation.
