Comprehensive Requirement (B.S.)

Students will select one of two options to satisfy their Senior Comprehensive Requirement (or Senior Capstone):

  1. Take an Environmental Science major-only senior seminar capstone class (any course in the ESCI 191 sequence). This course will also satisfy the Disciplinary Communication (DC) GE.
  2. Write a senior thesis based on original research performed by the student and enroll in ESCI 195. This will also satisfy the Disciplinary Communication GE.

In all cases, approval of the capstone selection by a faculty advisor will be necessary. Other capstones will not be considered unless they also satisfy the DC requirement. Enrollment in these courses is limited to Environmental Science majors with senior standing.

Please note: Courses that are used to satisfy the capstone may not also count toward fulfilling the upper-division elective requirement.
