Guided by case studies in successful environmental protection, upper level students apply their interdisciplinary skills and knowledge to help plan and carry out an environmental protection project in the region. Although designed as a capstone course for Environmental Studies majors concentrating in either Conservation and Society or Environmental Policy and Justice, other interested students meeting the prerequisites are welcome. Students are assessed on quality of participation in project work, several research and writing assignments, and final project presentation and report.
