GLIN==> Open for enrollment: MSU Online Professional Certificate for Watershed Management Program

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.


Michigan State University has a unique opportunity to meet this education/information and ongoing service role required in the watershed planning area. Expertise in natural resources, land, aquatic systems and community development, and the land use policy and law perspectives exists among several departments.
