Human activities and climate change have significantly altered water supply and water quality. Watersheds have become the planning and management unit for many water issues. There is an increasing trend that employment opportunities in agriculture, environmental science, and other related areas are preferably given to those graduates who earned training and hands-on experience in watershed, water quality, and aquatic science. This course provides an opportunity for honors students to gain a fundamental knowledge of watersheds and water resources. Such knowledge can be inspiring to students in all majors, and can be especially beneficial to students aiming at fields in professions related to environmental consulting, engineering, urban planning, natural resource management, environmental journalism, and sociology.
