Water Science - Minor

This program is designed to provide students with a strong and structured physical understanding of hydrolical processes that affect the quantity and movement of surface and near-surface waters and the impacts of human activities on water supply and characteristics.  Opportunities exist within the minor for students to explore atmosphere-land surface interactions through the application of Geographic Information Science technology in hydrolical modelling, to explore ecosystem interactions of water, and to better understand the linkages between water, landscape and climate.  Students are trained in the fundamental background and key practical skills required to address the emerging water problems in Canada.

The minor in Water Science can be taken in conjunction with any degree in the College of Arts and Science.

The Minor average in Water Science will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the Minor program requirements. Students must complete at least two-thirds of the program requirements (rounded to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement.
