In order to complete the degree requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies, all students must complete an Experiential Component. See the program coordinator for the proposal and project approval process. The goal for the Experiential Component is for all students to gain hands-on experience in some aspect of Environmental Studies outside of the classroom, such as an independent research project, an activism project or an internship. A professor from the Environmental Studies faculty will serve as the faculty mentor for each project.
ENV 490 - Environmental Capstone Symposium is taken twice. The first time, the student enrolls for zero credit when the student participates as an observer and questioner. The second time, the student enrolls for one credit when they present the findings from their experiential project.
