Student-Originated Studies: Environmental Science
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This program is an opportunity for students to do intermediate or advanced work in environmental sciences with the support of a peer group. Students will work independently or in small groups to carry out in-depth research projects or study specific topics. This work may include an internship if the student has already identified an outside agency and potential field supervisor for the internship. Priority will be given to students with well-defined questions or objectives.
Students will meet weekly as a group with faculty to problem solve and support group members' work. Weekly meetings may also include seminar readings and discussion, along with workshops or support training. The exact content of the shared portion will be determined during the first class meeting.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
biology, ecology, environmental studies, field studies and marine science.
