Senior Thesis Colloquium
The Senior Colloquium is required for seniors who are pursuing the Certificate in Environmental Studies. The Colloquium meets for a total of twelve (12) 50-minute sessions throughout the year.
Meetings in the fall semester are faculty-led and provide guidance in the development of the senior thesis with particular emphasis on researching and developing the essential environmental theme. Colloquium meetings in the late fall and early spring are organized around individual student presentations.
In this context, ENV students are afforded the opportunity to present their senior independent work including central hypothesis, research, and findings to an audience of their interdisciplinary peers.
The Colloquium is an important and culminating experience for students who are pursuing the Certificate in Environmental Studies. Colloquium classes are scheduled in the fall with individual student schedules taken into consideration. Attendance at Colloquium sessions is mandatory. Students must attend a minimum of 80% of Colloquium classes. Not doing so will jeopardize their certificate eligibility. The colloquium course is non-credit bearing.
