Environmental Analysis Program
Scripps College participates with Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Pomona Colleges in a 5-College collaboration that allows students to take advantage of a broad range of courses, facilities, and opportunities in the study of environmental issues.
The Environmental Analysis Program (EAP) is designed to prepare students for careers in many environmental problem-solving fields, including law, policy, medicine, chemistry, conservation, global climate change, urban planning, and resource management. It also provides a solid background for careers in environmental education and community environmental action.
The program regards off-campus study as a vital, strongly encouraged, part of the major experience, enabling students to secure a deeper appreciation for the global dimensions of our environmental situation. Specially focused environmental off-campus study semesters include programs in Australia, Costa Rica, Botswana, Ecuador, New Zealand, and South Africa.
