Ph.D. (Water Science and Governance)

Apply Now
Department of Regional Water Studies at the TERI University offers both full time and part time PhD programmes in Water Science and Governance. Over the years, there has been growing pressure on the water systems leading to precarious balance between various competing uses of water. Rapid population growth and climate change has further added to water woes and conflicts at all levels. There is a growing consensus among the stakeholders to adopt an interdisciplinary approach to sustainable water management. The change management however requires an in-depth understanding of complex water-related issues through basic as well as applied research to influence the decision maker and planners.

Students admitted to the PhD programme are required to go through coursework for one year. During this pre-PhD programme, students are exposed and orientated to the interdisciplinary nature of issues in the water sector. They must develop a basic knowledge of economics, social science, policy and research methodology in addition to a sound knowledge of ecological/environmental science. After successfully completing their pre-PhD courses, students are registered for PhD

Admissions are open throughout the year. However, applications will be considered until 31 May and 31 October for admissions in the semesters commencing July and January each year.
