Student Research and Fieldwork
Fieldwork and Lab Work
Laboratory and field techniques are incorporated into many of the courses offered in the Environmental Science program. Hands-on experience in labs and the field reinforce theoretical concepts and allow students the opportunities to learn valuable skills.
The mandatory field course in Geography and Environmental Studies (Third Year Field Studies, ES/GG399) requires that students undertake a research project in a field location and that they develop the project from question through data gathering and analysis to presentation of a final product. The course involves absence from campus during fall term.
There are several opportunities for Biology, Chemistry and Geography research. See any of the following for opportunities to work with faculty on projects of local, national and international significance:
