Graduate Program

MS Hydrology

This program is intended for students with an interest in Ground- and Surface-Water Hydrology, Water Quality, Quantitative and Statistical Hydrology, and Water Resource Management. Durham, where the university is located, is situated where the Oyster River enters Great Bay, one of the most important estuaries of the Gulf of Maine. Only ten miles away are the Atlantic beaches and Portsmouth, a deep water harbor.

The core curriculum for the major in hydrology usually consists of:
ESCI 805: Principles of Hydrology
ESCI 810: Groundwater Hydrology

In addition, ESCI 997 (Seminar in Earth Sciences, 1 cr.) and ESCI 998 (Proposal Development, 1 cr.) are required each semester of the first year, and ESCI 899 (Thesis, 6 cr.) for those students pursuing the thesis option.

Prospective students are urged to contact the graduate program director (J. Matthew Davis) or individual professors to learn more about activities, opportunities and financial aid (teaching assistantships, research assistantships, scholarships) at the University of New Hampshire.
