EES 1200H Environmental Science Research Experience 

This course is designed to facilitate student integration into the research process at the very start of MSc studies. The course begins with an intensive workshop co-taught by current MSc supervising faculty, focusing on experimental design, approaches to environmental science research and connection to important research resources. The summer term course continues with the integration of the student into their thesis supervisor’s research group for the collection of data toward addressing a research question. Student success in summer research is supported through a direct supervisor-student research mentorship.
