Certificate in Water Resources Management class now open for enrollment

Post Date:02/22/2016 4:12 PM

In today's critical water supply times, a water manager's life is more complicated than ever.  Competent and informed water managers are needed to successfully manage our water resources fairly.  For these reasons, California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) and regional water agencies, including Vallecitos Water District, have joined forces to develop a unique certificate program in Water Management designed to familiarize participants with a wide range of water issues.  While open to the general public, this program is geared toward individuals already employed in the water industry who wish to advance their supervisory skills and knowledge. 

The prerequisite class for this certificate program is MGMT 482-4, which incorporates the study of regional water usage and sources, disposal and recycling, water infrastructure, impact of water shortage as well as career opportunities in water management. The course is a precursor to the Water Management Certificate program that will be offered this fall.

MGMT 482-4 will be offered at the San Marcos campus on Tuesday evenings beginning March 29 from 6:00-8:50 pm. Consisting of eight three-hour evening lectures by local water experts and two Saturday tours of local state-of-the-art water facilities, the program culminates with a Practicum Research Project that allows students to work with a local water agency to address a current problem or issue.  To register or to learn more about the Water Management Program, click here or email Alan Styles at
