New Mexico faces serious challenges concerning the supply, development, quality, management, and administration of water resources. To help meet these needs, an Interdisciplinary Program in Water Science & Management (WSM) has been developed at NMSU by a team of water experts.
The primary purposes of the interdisciplinary degree program in Water Science and Management are to provide graduate education for addressing state, national, and international water issues, and to train the next generation of water professionals needed to meet the challenges described above.
