Senior Seminar


Each student is expected to participate in the Senior Seminar (EARTHSYS 210A, B, or C). In this seminar, students give a 30 minute presentation on their internship and lead a discussion of the implications of their work. The presentation should include a historical perspective, the goals of the project, the student's responsibilities, and the results of the work. The student should be prepared to discuss the work with the rest of the class and with students from different tracks, and should be able to place their work within the larger Earth Systems perspective. As well, students participating in the Senior Seminar undertake a group project focusing on an interdisciplinary problem of their choice pertinent to Earth Systems. In general, these projects analyze a local issue of current interest.
