FOR 481C - Applied Wildland Fire Science Capstone

Description: The capstone project in Applied Wildland Fire Science is designed for students to integrate the knowledge and skills they have gained across their undergraduate major in a culminating academic experience that prepares them for professional work. Students will build upon previous and concurrent coursework to assess a problem and propose potential solutions, developing one or more recommended alternatives. The capstone should incorporate ecological, ethical, environmental, social, and political/legal components of wildland fire science. The course is intended to be linked through in-person or virtual engagement with a professional organization such as a private forest owner, governmental or tribal fire agency, or non-governmental organization addressing forest and fire issues. The course will culminate in the preparation of a formal capstone report, copied to the sponsor organization, and a video oral presentation. Letter grade only.
