I recently came across this list of watsan courses offered by US universities at the MIT webportal on water and sanitation (http://web.mit.edu/watsan/courses_uswatercourses.html). The download links are not the most updated, but it can give some directions of where to look for it or who to talk to.

Boston University, Wastewater and Health, Fall '05, Richard Clapp and Laura Orlando

Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health, Water and Sanitation in Developing Countries, Spring '10, Christine Moe

Harvard University, Harvard School of Public Health, Water and Human Well-Being, Fall '09, John Briscoe

Stanford University, Issues in Water, Health & Development, Winter '08, Karen Levy

Stanford University, Water and sanitation infrastructure planning in developing countries, Spring 2009, Jenna Davis

Tufts University, Biology of Water and Health, Fall'09, Jeffrey Griffiths and David Gute

University of North Carolina, Global Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Spring 07, Mark Sobsey

University of Virginia, Water for the World, Jim Smith

and the one offered by the MIT.

Hope it can help somehow!

Best,

Cecelia:
Colleges and universities will often deal with WATSAN in courses that bear titles involving Global Health. One such course at Providence College taught by a colleague in Global Studies has a major unit on water and sanitation. I recently did a session on the work of toilet group in the department of Engineering-Physics-Systems at PC in WATSAN. You might have to enlarge the search terms to find courses dealing with WATSAN. Thanks for the post.

Hello,
Just to add to the previous listing...

At North Carolina State University, we had a course on Water and Sanitation for Developing Regions in Fall 2011 (CE 497/596). The course will be offered again as CE 397 in Spring 2014. However, it is an on-campus class (you have to be on campus to take it). Hopefully in a few years, it can be offered as a distance class (can be accessed remotely).
