Senior Seminar
E&ES 497
Fall 2017
Section: 01  

This seminar-style capstone course for E&ES seniors explores major topics that span multiple subdisciplines of the Earth and Environmental Sciences. Students will use the primary literature to create hypothesis-driven oral presentations and written reports. In groups, students will develop and execute original, field-based research projects. Data will be collected for these projects during a four-day field trip. Students will then analyze and interpret their data, and then present their findings with a group presentation and written report. The goal of the course is to help students transition to independent, professional scientists.
