Seniors will display & present their Capstone project to the campus community
• Student presentations will take place in Monroe Hall, on the 3rd floor, Thursday, April 20th, from 12:30 – 2:00pm. Light refreshments will be served in room 301.
• Student posters will also be on display starting Wednesday, April 19th through Friday, April 21st.
The culmination of the major and minor is a Senior Capstone Experience consisting either of an internship (ENVA A497), a research project (ENVA A498) or an independent study (ENVA A499).
All majors enrolled in this program take a 4-course core curriculum, 11-12 hours of concentration courses within their major, selected adjunct courses and 30-33 hours of electives (major electives and general electives). This curriculum introduces students to the major global and regional environmental issues facing the planet today, and provides students with the knowledge and problem-solving skills that will enable them to play an active role in understanding our global and regional ecosystems and contributing to their future well-being. Depending on the area of concentration, this curriculum will prepare students for entry into graduate or professional schools and career paths in a diversity of fields such as environmental research, environmental policy/law, sustainability planning and development, natural resource management and conservation, environmental communications, environmental education, creative writing, environmental consulting and many others, in both public and private sectors. Graduating seniors must also complete an exit interview with the Program Director.
