The Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of the Hydrologic Sciences Inc. (CUAHSI) has organized these inter-university courses to enhance the depth and breadth of graduate course offerings at universities across the nation, increase the rate of uptake of new research and facilitate networking among our hydrologic community.

The format of the course is designed to give you flexibility to select the three* topics most relevant to you from a list of Specialized Online Hydrology Course (SOHC) Modules that are being offered by leading faculty in these specialized research niches from across the country. Each SOHC module, which is equivalent to one-third of a semester course, is designed to facilitate interaction among the instructor and students and contain some evaluation elements (problem sets, projects, presentations, exams etc.). The instructor at each student’s home university will assign a grade based on the student scores and class distribution provided by the SOHC module instructor. The course will run from September to November with each SOHC module being conducted for 4 weeks.

*As University of California-Santa Barbara is on the quarter semester system, students must select two topics from the October and November choices.
