Making change to our relationship with nature
Environmental Policy challenges students to create a broad, integrated understanding of the Earth’s environment, the problems (such as climate change and groundwater pollution) it faces, and the responses of social systems to these challenges. This understanding establishes the basis for action. The disciplines of law, economics, and the social and natural sciences play key roles in this field. Direct involvement in the process is pivotal to creating a meaningful understanding of these complex systems, and students can expect to do significant work in the field. A wealth of internship opportunities in Environmental Policy can serve as the basis for independent studies or Senior Projects.
