Water security is one of the defining global challenges of our era. Would you like to be part of the solution? Are you looking for a rewarding career in the water sector? Are you interested in enhancing your skills and knowledge of water science, engineering, management and policy? The Master of Water Security (MWS) is a unique interdisciplinary professional graduate program designed to train the next generation of Water Security professionals, working in government, industry and NGOs. The MWS program is a joint initiative between School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) and the Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS).


In 2020-21, the MWS will be offered as a remote program and can be taken from anywhere in the world. Students will interact with faculty and classmates through our online learning platform, which will facilitate group discussions and presentations, flexible delivery of lecture material, and access to state-of-the-art software for data analysis and modelling. Our world-class water faculty will be available to facilitate your learning, and our professional partners working in the water sector will provide networking opportunities for you. The MWS program involves 10 compressed (2 week) courses and a professional project undertaken over the summer with an external project partner. Projects may be based in Saskatchewan, Canada-wide, or around the world. See here to view the MWS project repository.
