Water resources are central to Oregon's well-being and development, and OSU is the state's flagship university for training water professionals with a rich roster of faculty and courses already in place.
The Water Resources Program at Oregon State University awards M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and brings together faculty and students from six colleges and multiple departments. The Program includes core requirements for all students with additional work concentrated in specific degree programs in:
Students will draw from a set of existing OSU courses covering engineering approaches, watershed processes, and/or water resources management and policy.
We are a community of faculty, students, staff, and alumni engaged in water resource education, research, and outreach at Oregon State University. Our community includes those native to the USA, many of whom are descendants of immigrants, and many who are international scholars or recent immigrants. We are committed to promoting respect, courtesy, and human dignity in our daily professional interactions to create an inclusive environment in the Water Resources Graduate Program.
We value diversity and honor the contributions made to our community by people from diverse disciplines, countries, cultures and identities. We value the free and respectful exchange of ideas and collaborations with those from other disciplines and perspectives, with our colleagues from within the USA and from other countries.
We strive to build a diverse and inclusive environment that honors and respects the contributions and knowledge of all, not only because we believe that doing so will best prepare us to meet future challenges in understanding and sustainably managing the world’s water resources, but also because we believe we have a moral and ethical responsibility to do so.
Due to the generosity of OSU alumni Bill and Jane Jackson, the Water Resources Graduate Program has the ability to offer either one or two scholarships to assist excellent students who need financial support as they complete their Masters or Doctorate in one of the WRGP degree programs (WRE, WRPM, or WRS). The WRGP invites applications from eligible graduate students for the Bill and Jane Jackson Scholarship.
