Students in Environmental Science complete an independent research project related to a current environmental topic. Research includes both field and laboratory experiments, depending on the nature of the question being explored. The senior capstone course also allows students to explore an environmental issue from multiple perspectives and typically involves literature research, interviews, and data compilation.
