Senior Research and Thesis

Undertaking a senior essay, senior research or a senior thesis is a unique opportunity for you to develop and hone your intellectual ability to conceptualize, implement and complete an original environmentally focused research project under the direction of your adviser.

You must identify a faculty sponsor for these options the semester prior to beginning your project. Please see the University Bulletin for more details on these options.

Note: Students interested in completing a senior thesis must register for ENVS 99a (Senior Research) and ENVS 99b (Senior Thesis) in consecutive semesters. ENVS 97a (Senior Essay) is the one-semester option for a research project.
