The core interdisciplinary course in the social sciences: EUS 101, Introduction to Environmental & Urban Studies
The core interdisciplinary course in the physical sciences: EUS 102, Introduction to Environmental & Urban Science
Any one EUS course at the 200 level in one of the following areas of study:
a. Historical Studies
c. Biology, Physics, or Chemistry*
* = Note Prerequisites: 100-level courses are prerequisites for all 200-level Economics, Biology, and Chemistry courses. 100-level courses in Physics and/or Mathematics are prerequisites for 200-level Physics courses.
By the sophomore year, an EUS major must have an academic advisor who is an EUS core faculty member. In the second semester of the sophomore year, the student and advisor convene the moderation board. The board normally consists of three EUS faculty members (core or affiliated, and including the advisor), though one board member may be a non-EUS faculty member in the student’s Focus Area. One week prior to the board meeting, the student posts the following materials to the EUS Program moodle site:
1. Building on (3) above: One course at the 200-level or above in EACH of the two remaining areas of study (Historical Studies; Economics; and Biology, Physics, or Chemistry). Plan ahead so that you can complete required prerequisites: 100-level courses are prerequisites for all 200-level Economics, Biology, and Chemistry courses. 100-level courses in Physics and/or Mathematics are prerequisites for 200-level Physics courses.
2. EUS Colloquium: A 2-credit speaker series. The colloquium may be repeated as often as you like, but a maximum of 4 credits will be awarded.
3. EUS Practicum: A 2 or 4 credit studio course; includes field work. The course generally carries 4 credits, but more theoretically oriented students may elect to take it for 2 credits.
4. EUS Internship or Service Project (0 credits): please speak with the program administrator about internship details! firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. At least three EUS courses (12 credits) in any one Focus Area. Additional courses in the Focus Area may be advised but are normally not required unless they serve as prerequisites for required courses.
6. At least two courses at the 300-level in the student’s Focus Area. These courses need not be EUS-related courses.
7. Four credits in empirical analysis (e.g., GIS; statistics), research methods, writing, mathematics, or computer science, as deemed appropriate for the student’s Focus Area and Senior Project and selected in consultation with the advisor or moderation board.
