The following Environmental Studies Master’s Portfolio is a compilation of works completed individually and with peers in order to fulfill requirements for the Master of Science degree. These works demonstrate range, depth, and the interdisciplinary nature of the course of study. As an undergraduate student at Eastern Washington University, I studied Environmental Science with a concentration in hydrogeology. I was interested in learning about the natural world and wanted to develop a deeper connection to it. Inevitably, I was exposed to courses that examined the causes and effects of hazardous waste site remediation, and this topic became my passion. The Environmental Studies program has provided an opportunity to shift my focus from deepening my understanding of the questions about how and why hazardous waste is regulated and disposed of, to advancing my knowledge of what should come next. I have focused my efforts on environmental remediation and how people can respond to environmental issues such as hazardous waste disposal.
