B.A. in Environmental Policy

From municipal decisions to international treaties, policy plays a key role in sustainability. Effective policies lead to environmental conservation and innovation towards a green economy. In contrast, poorly designed policies exacerbate environmental problems and social inequities by favoring actions that degrade ecosystems and human communities.

Students studying Environmental Policy develop a solid foundational understanding of environmental science, the ability to analyze policies and assess their implications for sustainability, knowledge of the policy-making process and opportunities to influence it, and skills to communicate and collaborate with diverse stakeholders in environmental decision-making. Students have opportunity to engage directly with environmental policy through service-learning, internships, undergraduate research, and/or study abroad.

The B.A. in environmental policy prepares students for careers in government, not-for-profit organizations, and consulting, or to pursue advanced study in environmental policy, public administration, urban and regional planning, natural resource management, or law
