Environment, Economics, and Politics

The interdisciplinary Environment, Economics, and Politics (EEP) major is designed to prepare students for careers in a variety of environmental fields as well as for graduate study in a related field. The major is designed to develop a general understanding of the various disciplines that study environmental systems including biology, chemistry, economics, and government policy. The program also emphasizes the ways in which the various disciplines inform each other in environmental decision-making settings.



Faculty members from several disciplines contribute to the required courses for the EEP major. The EEP major is administered by the Environment, Economics, and Politics Committee.
