Graduate Program in Hydrogeology


The Department of Geology offers M.S. and Ph.D. programs in geology specializing in physical and contaminant hydrogeology. Current research areas include:

Opportunities also exist for collaboration with the Alabama Geological Survey and the U.S. Geological Survey's local office in Tuscaloosa to conduct research on local issues that affect water quality and water resources in Alabama.

The Department of Geology offers a wide spectrum of graduate courses in hydrogeology and related fields, including hydrogeology, contaminant hydrogeology, groundwater flow and transport modeling, hydrogeology field methods, groundwater restoration, aqueous geochemistry, isotope hydrology, geophysics, and geostatistics. In addition, the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Biological Sciences and Geography offer many courses of direct interest to hydrogeology students, such as surface water hydrology, water quality analysis, microbiology, and water resource management.
