Environmental Science Research I
In this introduction to research, each student chooses an environmental topic, investigates it thoroughly in the scientific literature, and presents both a written and a formal report in a formal setting. The report will include a proposal for further research. The topic will then be investigated during the student's senior research project. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have developed information retrieval skills in regard to primary scientific literature and will have developed skills in formal scientific writing, speaking, and experimental design. Prerequisite: Environmental Science major and junior standing.
