    Environmental Studies Courses

335-45000 Capstone Seminar for Environmental Studies/Science Majors   LA U

    An integrative course that encourages students to apply ideas and concepts learned as an environmental studies major toward a specific area of environmental inquiry or a particular environmental problem. The specific subject matter of the course is determined by the professor teaching it, but common to all capstone seminars is class involvement in a rigorous research agenda, drawing on methodologies from natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Course topics generally focus on local or regional environmental issues, showing their interconnections to global environmental concerns. Students are encouraged to move out of the classroom to conduct research projects. Public presentations of research findings is strongly encouraged. Prerequisites: environmental studies or environmental science majors with junior standing or above. 3-4 credits. (F-S,Y)

Reading or research is undertaken under faculty direction. Prerequisites: Permission of instructor. 1-4 credits. (F-S,Y)
