San Marcos, Calif. — Feb. 27—Beginning this spring, the College of Business Administration at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) and CSUSM Extended Learning will be offering a timely new course: Survey of Water Management in Southern California (MGMT 482). The course is an excellent opportunity for those who are interested in obtaining a deeper understanding of the water issues facing our region, and provides an excellent overview of the water management industry in California.
Students taking the Survey of Water Management course will acquire background on past, present, and future issues facing the water industry in California, with a specific focus on the southern parts of the state. Dr. Lee Brown, who has more than 40 years' experience in water management education and hydrologic practice, will lead the class. Expert speakers from a variety of backgrounds will enhance the classroom experience. In addition to the eight regular class sessions, students will participate in tours of three water facilities, giving them greater insight into local water treatment, water distribution, and wastewater management issues.
"Water use and the related environmental issues are extremely pertinent here in Southern California, and this course combines classroom and field learning to give students an appreciation for the water supply infrastructure, as well as water use strategies and watershed management," says Professor Alan Styles, PhD, of the CSUSM College of Business Administration. "The course also enables students to learn about career options in the water management industry and network with professionals. The addition of this course advances the mission of CSUSM, insofar as it provides exceptional, career-oriented education for students and addresses a critical issue impacting our region."
A few spaces are still available in the course, which begins March 18, and runs through May 13, 2015. Tuition is $450, with an additional $65 in fees. Enrollment is open and a limited number of scholarships are available for students who are not currently employed in the water industry.
