EARTHSYS 210A: Senior Capstone and Reflection

The Earth Systems Senior Capstone and Reflection, required of all seniors, provides students with opportunities to synthesize and reflect on their learning in the major. Students participate in guided career development and planning activities and initiate work on an independent or group capstone project related to an Earth Systems problem or question of interest. In addition, students learn and apply principles of effective oral communication through developing and giving a formal presentation on their internship. Students must also take EARTHSYS 210P, Earth Systems Capstone Project, in the quarter following the Senior Capstone and Reflection Course. Prerequisite: Completion of an approved Earth Systems internship ( EARTHSYS 260).

EARTHSYS 212: Human Society and Environmental Change (EARTHSYS 112, ESS 112, HISTORY 103D)

Interdisciplinary approaches to understanding human-environment interactions with a focus on economics, policy, culture, history, and the role of the state. Prerequisite: ECON 1.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4

EARTHSYS 227: Decision Science for Environmental Threats (ESS 227)

Decision science is the study of how people make decisions. It aims to describe these processes in ways that will help people make better or more well-informed decisions. It is an interdisciplinary field that draws upon psychology, economics, political science, and management, among other disciplines. It is being used in a number of domain areas and for a variety of applications, including managing freshwater resources, designing decision support tools to aid in coastal adaptation to sea-level rise, and creating "nudges" to enhance energy efficiency behaviors. This course covers behavioral theories of probabilistic inference, intuitive prediction, preference, and decision making. Topics include heuristics and biases, risk perceptions and attitudes, strategies for combining different sources of information and dealing with conflicting objectives, and the roles of group and emotional processes in decision making. This course will introduce students to foundational theories of decision science, and will involve applying these theories to understand decisions about environmental threats.

EARTHSYS 282A: Ecological Farm Systems (EARTHSYS 182A)

An in-person, outdoor, project-based course in sustainable agricultural systems. Students will work individually or in small groups on projects at the Stanford Educational Farm. Potential projects this fall include building educational gardens, orchard establishment and management, and seedling propagation for plant donations for low-income families in partnership with Valley Verde in San Jose. Students are also encouraged to develop their own sustainable agriculture projects based on their interests.nn nnThe class will meet in-person, outdoors at the Stanford Educational Farm. Students will be required to follow farm and University COVID-19 protocols. By application only. The application can be found here: https://stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e2tzecrtvl5lmm1
Terms: Aut | Units: 1-2 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 4 units total)

EARTHSYS 290: Master's Seminar

Required of and open only to Earth Systems co-terminal MS and MA students. This remote course has several elements, including, skill building through experiential learning and reflection and professional development. Students will either work in teams with a community partner in the Bay area on a predetermined project, or select a self- designed project with a partner anywhere in the world. The idea is to complete a well-defined, manageable, but important project to a high standard under significant time constraints. Our community partners have requested help with achieving their missions and seminar students will utilize their backgrounds in social/environmental problem solving to deliver a final product. Our partners have requested help with such efforts as grant and report writing, data analysis, curriculum development, symposium organizing, presentation research and preparation and communications to raise awareness about an environmental challenge.

If you choose to design your own project, the instructor will help you to create this opportunity. Students will give oral presentations on their project progress throughout the quarter, culminating in a final presentation at a symposium with our partners. Students will also explore how best to communicate their interdisciplinary skills and goals through their resumes, cv¿s or cover letters, portfolios or linkedIn profiles in preparation for the next phase of their career. Guest speakers and in class workshops will complement these activities.
