Undergraduate Senior Theses

The Environmental Biology undergraduate summer internship program allows students to conduct original research under the supervision of the department's extensive core, adjunct and affiliate faculty. Most often, students do real fieldwork, collecting data for their senior theses.  The Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC), the Earth Institute, the Craig Family Scholars Fund, and other donors provide funding for undergraduate research. Internships are required for undergraduate majors in Environmental Biology who have completed their junior year. They are open ONLY to Environmental Biology majors. (Sorry, neither CERC nor E3B provides internship opportunities to students from other universities!)

Evolution Biology of the Human Species (EBHS) students may also complete unfunded senior theses. Some are library based projects while roughly half are field-oriented and based on research that students conduct either during the summer or over the course of the year.
