Seniors in the Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment certificate program return from their internships and share their experiences and with other certificate students in their third year of the Certificate Seminar ES 495. They continue active participation in Center-sponsored activities and complete any outstanding certificate requirements. Now the students integrate their experiences gained from their majors, additional course work, internships and research into their senior integrative projects.

During the year they present their progress to students and faculty in the Certificate Seminar. They present their final senior integrative project as either an individual study or an honors thesis at an annual public event, and prepare posters and abstracts of their work. Finally, the seniors attend a ceremony in their honor where they receive their Certificates in Environmental Studies.
