In addition to the course component, students must complete three water-related activities.
1. Attend One Water Meeting and Social. These are held Fall and Spring semesters. They are in-person and virtual for Global Campus students.
2. Attend One Water Seminar per Year (in-person or virtual) and Summarize the Experience. Students must attend one freshwater research seminar per year and submit the required documentation to meet this requirement.
- It must be a research talk and be freshwater focused;
- The lecture must be outside of your regular classes – a class lecture does not count; and
- It can be from within or outside of WSU. Seminars are posted on the WRC events calendar or you can find other opportunities.
Seminar documentation: Please submit a one-page summary of the talk you attended (in your own words), along with the title, presenter’s name, date of the event, and whether it was in-person or virtual. Please email this documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Other activities (must complete one):
- Capstone class: SOE 535 Interdisciplinary Water Resources Science and Management, is a 3-credit interdisciplinary course designed to explicitly provide students with an overview and broad understanding of the complex freshwater issues that exist and the policy and science required to manage them. Offered spring semesters.
- Water-related internship: Students looking for a more practical, hands-on experience have the option of completing an internship that relates to freshwater science or policy. (E.g., through the PNNL-WRC SULI Program or other water-related internship opportunity; 135 hrs (3 credits) required)
