M Hydrology year 1

The MSc Hydrology is a two year program. The first year of the program
consists completely of compulsory courses that are distributed over the
two teaching lines (1) Process Hydrology (2) Water Risk. Here the
students get acquainted with several key components of the hydrological
system (e.g. catchment hydrology, ecohydrology, groundwater etc.), as
well as their links to society (explicit in e.g. Water Economics and
Integrated Modelling in Hydrology courses). At the end of the year the
students learn how to perform measurements, and then apply these
themselves in a field study (including 3-4 week field trip) which is
aimed at teaching the students to collect data themselves, formulate and
find answers to hypothesis, and link the various subsystems in hydrology
and their ties to societal issues.
