    Course Summary

    ENVS 400 is the capstone class for the environmental studies program at Lewis & Clark. The majority of the class is focused on helping students create a capstone outcome by the end of the semester. This class also tries to help students prepare for life after college both professionally and personally. In my case, I wrote a thesis for my capstone outcome. I focused on my interests in environmental law and policy as well as forestry. My capstone is titled Populism in the forests and tried to shed light on the question; What are the consequences of populism on international forestry?

    Senior Capstone

    Our main work in ENVS 400 involves a senior capstone: an original, interdisciplinary environmental research project, resulting in a thesis or other outcome. The page linked above provides more information on my senior capstone.
