Degree Requirements

The Environmental Policy and Culture Program offers students an interdisciplinary approach to environmental studies, focusing on the social sciences and humanities. Environmental issues and conflicts are among the most important concerns of the 21st century. The major and minor in Environmental Policy and Culture provide opportunities to engage in scholarly inquiry about managing the natural environment. Courses address issues such as global climate change, efforts to maintain and restore biodiversity, and the reconciliation of development with environmental protection. Courses that fulfill EPC requirements include both those offered by EPC (identified as ENVR_POL) and courses from different departments and programs. Environmental Policy and Culture students take at least 1 relevant course in the natural sciences but the emphasis is on courses in the humanities and social sciences.
