ENV 435 - Senior Seminar in River Conservation

3 credits (PREREQUISITES: ENV 130)

This is a senior level course based on interactive dialogue, research papers and seminars. Students will identify a particular area of interest related to the problems of water sustainability, resource protection, watershed development, as examples, to develop a problem statement. Students will then undertake literature-based research to develop and articulate our current understanding of the issue and the implications relative to public policy. Students will draw upon their class learnings and other experiences to identify the issue of interest to them, to prepare a research paper and to present the findings in a formal seminar setting to fellow students.
