Many environmental risks and societal concerns are directly related to the way we manage our land and water environments. The management of water resources and conflicts and collaborations caused by shared water resources are emphasised through applications to practical management challenges in society.
Students completing the Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources Masterís programme at Stockholm University are expected to be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of hydrological and hydrogeological processes, the main components of the water cycle, and vulnerability and resilience of water resources, use models, mathematical equations and information systems as important tools for dealing with water related problems (including environmental aspects and ecological economics), handle hydrologic data, including methods for time series analyses and management of spatial data using geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistics, and be able to quantify and handle uncertainty, probability and risk.
Compulsory courses are: Information and Modelling Systems for Land and Water Resources; Land-Water Risk Assessment and Management Methods; Local to Global Water Vulnerability and Resilience.
This broad knowledge is important for professions related to international conflict management, environmental management by governmental agencies, environmental policy, civil and environmental engineering, and industrial and agricultural impact assessments.
