Senior Seminar
E&ES 497
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

This seminar-style capstone course for E&ES seniors focuses on career-building and improving scientific research skills by completing an original research project. In groups, students will develop original, field-based research projects, write a proposal, and complete the project. The goal of the course is to help students transition to independent, professional scientists. This year's trip is to Puerto Rico in mid-January 2025 for approximately one week. The department will cover the costs of airfare, food, and lodging. Students need to be comfortable being outside for hours with moderate hiking. Participation in the trip and the spring course (E&ES 498) is required to receive credit. In contrast to previous years, the course is not required for the E&ES major, but still counts toward major requirements as an elective. This class requires the approval of the instructor (POI). To register for this class, please complete the Google Form that will be emailed to all current EES junior majors once pre-registration opens on April 2, 2024. POI decisions will be handled promptly.
