We have some very exciting news to share! The UA Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences and The Institute of Hydraulics and River Engineering Research at Hohai University, Nanjing, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on a new 3+2 degree program in hydrology! 

Up to 10 Hohai undergraduates per year will enter the HAS Bachelor's program (Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources emphasis) to complete their senior year at the University of Arizona. During that year, they will complete both undergraduate and graduate courses to satisfy requirements for their Bachelor's degree at Hohai University and also a UA HAS Undergraduate Certificate in Groundwater Hydrology. During the second year, they will complete graduate course work exclusively, ultimately completing a Master of Science degree in Hydrology. The program is similar to the department's Accelerated Master's Program for HAS undergraduate majors.

Congratulations to all who worked so hard to make this new program possible. We look forward to meeting our first cohort of Hohai students very soon!
