Water resources studies leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are conducted in the Colleges of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources; Engineering, Architecture and Technology; and Arts and Sciences. In addition, the University has a M.S. and Ph.D. transdisciplinary program for graduate study in Environmental Sciences. Among departments offering water-oriented Ph.D. studies are Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering (watershed hydrology, irrigation engineering), Civil Engineering (water resources engineering, environmental engineering, water quality management), Plant and Soil Sciences (water quality, soil-water management, and nutrient management), and Natural Resource Ecology and Management (fisheries and aquatic ecology, rangeland ecology and management). Other departments offering excellent programs in water-related areas include Geology, Geography, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering (system science), Agronomy, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and Chemistry. Water-oriented research activities at Oklahoma State University are supported by the Environmental Institute; the Oklahoma Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit; the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station; and by state, federal, and private research projects.
