The senior thesis/project is a concentrated in-depth hands-on interdisciplinary research study, project, or creative arts project in the area of the student's concentration. Required course ENVS 201 Research Methods prepares the student to conduct research and write the proposal for their thesis/project. Upon approval of the proposal, which must receive a minimum grade of B, the student then enrolls in six credits of ENVS 202 Senior Thesis/Project, work with a minimum of two advisors/evaluators: one must be an ENVS full-time faculty member. Completion of the thesis/project is encouraged within one year of finishing ENVS 201. The six 202 credits may be divided between the fall or spring semesters as they best fit into the student's schedule, not necessarily when the work is being done.
