Environmental Research Experiences for Students (ERES): Making Careers Possible

Environmental Research Experiences for Students (ERES)

ERES is designed to provide undergraduate students with meaningful experience in scholarly research and creative activity focused on important environmental issues of the day. ERES will consist of semester-long, 1-3 credit-hour reading and research courses. The ENST BS degree will require a minimum of 6 credit hours (≥3 practical research) in either environmentally related natural, environmentally related social sciences, or environmentally related humanities.

ERES Structure: Faculty from across CAS with interest and expertise in water and other environmental issues will take on one or more undergraduate students each semester (similar to Independent Study and Honors Reading and Research) and involve the students directly in active, actual research within their specific discipline.

ERES Courses:

ENST 2940 (Research Reading); ENST 2950 (Practical Research)

ENST 3940 (Research Reading); ENST 3950 (Practical Research)

Students and sponsoring faculty would be eligible for financial support for their research each year (competitive, similar to UROP awards) in order to cover costs of expendables and consumables.
