General Education Requirements for EEP Majors

For the general education requirement in the social sciences and the humanities, EEP majors must complete appropriate courses in all four fields of the social sciences (economics, government, history, and psychology), together with courses in two of the four fields of the humanities (literature, philosophy, religious studies, and literature in a foreign language).

Student Learning Outcomes of the Program in Environment, Economics, and Politics (EEP)

In addition to the Keck Science overall learning outcomes, EEP students should achieve an understanding of biology, economics, and government policy similar to, if not quite as extensive as, majors in these disciplines. Evidence of such understanding should be reflected in grades from upper division courses in these fields.
