ENV 4800 Senior Environmental Practicum

This is the capstone course in Environmental Science. In it, a group of senior students participate in a common project using methods and skills learned in the classroom. Depending on the project, these may include graphic and communications skills, data collection and evaluation, and field and laboratory techniques. Examples of projects include the compilation of a natural resource inventory for a neighboring community and the investigation of water quality in an urban stream. The instructor selects the subject of the study from student proposals, but each student’s role on the team is jointly determined by both the student and the instructor. Students and instructor seek to simulate the working conditions of a professional consulting team engaged in a practical project. Regular work meetings are held during class time with a formal written and oral presentation at the end of the semester. This is a UCC Area 5 course. This is a writing intensive course.
