Welcome! Here is where students in the Environmental Studies Program at Lewis & Clark College share with you the process and outcome of work in core ENVS courses via their digital scholarship (DS). You have access to five DS sites here, one for each core course. Read on for more information!
What is digital scholarship?
ENVS students have long cultivated cutting-edge communication abilities and technical skills in ENVS courses via their digital scholarship. Digital scholarship affords students opportunities to share a wide range of work in a variety of media, and helps them build:
- A living portfolio of their work for prospective employers, graduate school, and others.
- Employable skills in digital communication, using the highly popular WordPress platform.
- Connections with the larger world, via their digital outreach to web visitors (you!).
- And a legacy for upcoming ENVS students, who read and benefit from their documented work.
What are these core courses?
As summarized in our ENVS major/minor page, all ENVS majors complete five core courses. Four courses—ENVS 160 (Introduction to Environmental Studies), ENVS 220 (Environmental Analysis), ENVS 350 (Environmental Theory), and ENVS 400 (Senior Seminar)—are designed as an interdisciplinary sequence, while ENVS 295 (Environmental Engagement) builds skills in communication and action.
