Description
The culminating experience of the environmental studies degree is the capstone seminar course. At this point you should understand why environmental studies is an interdisciplinary endeavor: the relationships between humans and nature are complex, and to understand them, one must understand their ecological, socio-cultural, economic, and moral dimensions. Through readings, discussions, guest speakers, field trips, independent research, writing, and oral presentations, you will extend your understanding of the underlying causes and long-term implications of some of the environmental problems facing the world today. In addition, you will apply your knowledge in these areas as you conceive of, conduct, and compose your own, original research. You shall illuminate the specific issue pertaining to this course by employing insights from the various disciplines that comprise environmental studies (e.g., ecology, political science, ethics, etc.). The goal of your research paper will be to arrive at conclusions about what can and should be done in response to the problem of this seminar.
