We are a watershed of knowledge

The Watershed Institute is fortunate to have a dedicated group of core faculty members along with a large cohort of affiliated faculty from across campus to give our students a broad range of knowledge in various subject areas, including Art & Design, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Communication & Journalism, English, Economics, Geography & Anthropology, Geology, Honors, Philosophy and Religious Studies, Psychology, and Physics. Our team of faculty is a sort of "watershed" in themselves – a large geographic unit, incorporating many different areas of study and disciplines.
