Comparison of hydrology curricula of different disciplines at German universities

Uwe Haberlandt and Hannes Müller

An overview of hydrological study programmes offered by German universities is given. There are only two independent study programmes in hydrology. The majority of study programmes in hydrology is taught within the scope of studies in engineering and geosciences.

The analysis is based on data from 18 universities providing information on 44 different study programmes.
