Environmental Science majors are required, and Earth Science majors are encouraged, to undertake a senior thesis project. Two courses guide students through the process of researching and writing up the thesis.
BC3800-BC3801y Senior Research Seminar - Advanced independent research under the supervision of a faculty member for the purpose of preparing the senior thesis.
UN3901 Environmental Science Senior Seminar - Required of all senior Environmental Science majors in the spring of their senior year. Students conduct guided, independent, in-depth research culminating in the senior thesis. Weekly seminar provides time to review work in progress and share results through oral and written reports.
Students present their research results at the annual Senior Thesis Poster Session in April. Lists of potential thesis projects and advisors are provided each year, but students may also wish to browse the titles of recent projects for more ideas.
