Class Details

The Environmental Studies and Maritime Studies programs provide students with an opportunity to explore the myriad ways in which humans interact with diverse environments at scales ranging from the local to the global. As one of the capstone courses for Environmental Studies and Maritime Studies, this research-based seminar will bring together students who have specialized in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, and will provide an opportunity for exchange and collaboration across these disciplinary streams. Readings, discussion, and research will be organized around a local environmental topic, and over the course of the semester students will work individually and as a group to produce a final multimedia report on this issue.
