Environmental Science Capstone: Problem Analyses in Environmental Science

The Environmental Science capstone is an Interdisciplinary senior research project designed to study an environmental problem from an integrated, multidisciplinary viewpoint. Students work collectively to develop testable hypotheses, design and implement experiments to test their hypotheses, and present their results in comprehensive written and oral reports.

Recent capstone research projects include:
  • MTBE in gasoline
  • Lead in soil, water, & homes
  • Acid mine drainage treatment
  • Effects of forest fragmentation
  • Pesticides on fruit
