Goals: To study environments from interdisciplinary perspectives; to explore environmental topics through a mix of lectures, individual and group projects, and class discussion.

Content: Highlighting approaches from the interdisciplinary tracks in Environmental Studies, this seminar will provide students with individual and group experience analyzing environmental issues through practice using multiple methodologies and ways of understanding environments. Students in the junior seminar will discuss selected interdisciplinary topics in environmental studies in preparation for the development of senior research topics. Students collaborate with each other to analyze readings on environmental topics of local and global significance, develop a project proposal, write a literature review, present a seminar, carry out a group project on campus, and submit a proposal for further work. Students are strongly encouraged to build connections between this course and their internship.
