This interdisciplinary program will prepare you for the challenges of a career in the environmental field. As a student of environmental policy, you’ll focus on the development and implementation of public policy responses to environmental issues, especially the economic, political and social factors that are an intrinsic part of the policymaking process. If you are more interested in the science behind policy issues, you’ll acquire a solid foundation based on the ways information should be used to assess environmental and societal risk and the relevant policies. Coursework is in environmental science and policy as is the laboratory work and field research.
