ENVI 402(S) Syntheses: Senior Seminar
This course asks students in environmental studies to synthesize their learning in the field-experiential and informal, as well as through courses-into a self-portrait and a statement of intellectual, professional, and personal purpose. Questions about past, present, and possible future value systems as they influence individual and social interactions with the natural environment will be raised. Students will be asked to become explicitly aware of their own values and will have an opportunity to justify them in a long synthesis paper. Format: seminar. Evaluation will be based on class participation and a major paper. Prerequisites: Environmental Studies 302. No enrollment limit (expected: 15). Required course for students wishing to complete the Environmental Studies concentration.
