Honors in Environmental Studies
Environmental Studies (ES) Program honors are awarded to ES seniors who have maintained the required college and department grade averages and who, by the end of the first semester of the senior year, have either registered for or enrolled in ES376 Senior Thesis. The senior thesis proposal must be approved by the ES Steering Committee prior to enrollment in ES76 Senior Thesis. In addition to the necessary grade averages and an A- or better on the ES senior thesis, students must receive the recommendation of the ES program.
The Senior Thesis Proposal (procedures, deadlines, and guidelines):
The ES Steering Committee must approve all senior thesis proposals before the projects are initiated and before enrollment in ES 376 Senior Thesis.
ES senior thesis proposals are due to the Director of ES by November 15 for spring semester projects, and April 5 for fall and summer projects.
Please submit your final thesis proposal electronically and simultaneously to the Director of Environmental Studies and your thesis advisor. This will allow the Director of ES to easily verify that your thesis advisor approves of your submission to the ES Steering Committee.
The Director of ES will provide the student and his/her thesis project advisor with a summary of the suggestions made by the ES Steering Committee members and indicate whether the project has been approved within several weeks of the aforementioned deadlines.
In order to submit a proposal to the ES Steering Committee for review, the student must identify a senior thesis advisor and work with that advisor to complete a proposal which includes the following components:
