Professor Robert Thorson teaches an honors course, GSCI 1055: Geoscience Through American Studies. He developed this course in 2004, and it was the first general education course developed specifically for honors enrollment.
The quality of the students’ final projects was incredibly high this year, and Thor would like to share the final products.
Take a look here! We hope you enjoy seeing the incredible work the students put in this semester!
