Program description

The environmental sciences, policy and management (ESPM) major is designed to address the needs posed by the complexity of environmental and renewable resource issues that are faced on a state, national, and global level. This interdisciplinary, environmental major prepares graduates to solve environmental problems from an integrated knowledge base.

The mission of the ESPM major is to:
• Improve the basis for environmental decision-making by integrating physical, biological, and social sciences with policy analysis and management;
• Educate the next generation of environmental professionals and leaders;
• Foster innovative approaches for the education of environmental professionals;
• Facilitate science/social science/policy linkages within and beyond the University.

Students complete a set of common "integrated core" courses that focus on integrated problem-solving using environmental sciences, policy, ethics, management models, and communication theory. Students also incorporate classroom and fieldwork.
