COOL CLASSES: "Industry and the Environment: Understanding Environmental Responses within the Textile Industry"

“Industry and the Environment: Understanding Environmental Responses within the Textile Industry”

This environmental studies class, taught by Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Elisabeth Evans, is part of a Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives (PACC) project this semester. It broadly examines how the environment is impacted by the textile industry.

Our Cool Classes blog series highlights interesting, unusual, and unique courses that enrich the Haverford College experience.

As part of a PACC project, the class partnered with Hidden City Philadelphia for a trip to historical manufacturing sites in Philadelphia including Globe Dye Works. See what other courses the Bi-College Department of Environmental Studies is offering this semester. Photo: Alexandra Iglesia '21

COOL CLASSES: "Economic Botany"

“Economic Botany”

This environmental studies course taught by Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Jonathan Wilson explores the fundamentals of plant biology, physiology, development, and evolution through the lens of agriculturally important plants: everything humans eat, grow, wear, and use.

Our Cool Classes blog series highlights interesting, unusual, and unique courses that enrich the Haverford College experience.

The 2018 iteration of the class went on a spring break field study to Trinidad and Tobago. See what other courses the Bi-College Department of Environmental Studies is offering this semester.

Physics & Astronomy

All physics and astronomy majors have the opportunity to perform meaningful and potentially publishable research, working closely with our faculty in fields such as quantum computing, observational cosmology, nonlinear physics and fluid dynamics, extragalactic astronomy, biophysics, and nanoscience.

Senior Thesis

The senior thesis represents the culmination of a Haverford student’s academic experience, and is one of the most important and rewarding ways that Haverford realizes its educational mission. It is an opportunity to do original research at levels usually reserved for graduate students, in partnership with faculty mentors. Haverford College is one of a very few institutions in the country that includes a senior thesis project as part of every student’s academic program.

"Two-Minute Thesis" is a video series produced by the Haverford College Libraries. Haverford senior thesis writers briefly discuss their theses, the research process, and share the ups and downs of their thesis-writing experience. Watch now»

“Ethical Struggles in Catastrophic Times: Quakers’ Responses to the Holocaust”

This religion course is an examination of some of the remarkable—and highly controversial—activities in which Quakers engaged as they tried to provide assistance to Jews who were being persecuted by the Nazis.

Our Cool Classes blog series highlights interesting, unusual, and unique courses that enrich the Haverford College experience.
