Environment, Economics, and Politics
The Environment, Economics, and Politics (EEP) major emphasizes 21st-century problems and opportunities involving interrelated environmental, economic, and political issues. The EEP major provides students in economics and policy studies with a background in ecological analysis and environmental management. Students take basic courses in science, economics, politics, and mathematics, together with advanced courses in areas such as environmental law, environment and resource economics, politics and the environment, and natural resource management. Seniors participate in a clinic course directed toward a specific environmental project. In the clinic, small groups of students work together to complete field work, analyses, report preparation, and oral seminar presentations.
