Closely associated with the Roberts Environmental Center, the Environment, Economics, and Politics (EEP) major emphasizes problems and opportunities for the real world of the 21st century. An awareness of the environmental issues has become increasingly important for anyone with a career in business or the professions. The EEP major provides students interested in economics and policy studies with a background in ecological analysis and environmental management.
Students take basic courses in biology, chemistry, economics, government, and mathematics, together with advanced courses in areas such as environmental law, environment and resource economics, government and the environment, and natural resource management. In their junior or senior year, students participate in a clinic course directed toward a specific environmental project.
This major cannot be combined with economics or government as a dual major.
