The two-year Master's programme in Water Science and Management gives students an in-depth understanding of modern water management techniques and water policies from a sustainable development perspective. Students gain an understanding of water's role with regard to humanity and nature as well as the societal impact of interventions in the water cycle. The programme integrates knowledge from natural and social sciences as a response to emerging needs in the field. Trends such as sustainable development, stakeholder participation, and economic accountability increasingly complicate the tasks of water managers. This has given rise to a need for water managers with a broad societal focus on water management issues, operating next to and in cooperation with more traditional and technical water managers. The Water Science and Management programme is an excellent choice for students who are interested in both the scientific analysis of the water system, and the application of water science in integrated and complex societal problems that occur in contemporary water management.
