ESPP Student

The concentration in Environmental Science and Public Policy is designed to provide a multi-disciplinary introduction to current problems of the environment.

While all students in the ESPP concentration take courses in biology, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, economics, government, and mathematics, the concentration offers students an opportunity to specialize in a specific area of either natural or social science relating to the environment. The knowledge from these courses is applied during the junior year in seminars envisaged as a central integrating component of the concentration.

Students wishing to graduate with honors are expected to write a thesis applying skills and knowledge gained from their course experience in the pursuit of research on a specific environmental issue.
