GEOL 450 - Senior Seminar

The overarching goal of the Senior Seminar course is to provide senior majors in the Geology Department an opportunity to demonstrate a culmination of their disciplinary learning in the Geology major by the creation of advanced work.  Students will participate in the peer-review process (both in writing abstracts, writing research papers or an honors thesis, and in the oral presentation of their work) and gain feedback from faculty as well.  In addition, the capstone experience provides an opportunity for students to reflect on the meaning and value of learning experiences in the Geology Department and their trajectories beyond Macalester. S/N grading only. Prerequisite(s): Senior standing in geology or permission of instructor. Spring semester. (1 Credits)
