Closely associated with the Roberts Environmental Center, the EEP major explores 21st-century problems and opportunities involving interrelated environmental, economic, and political issues. Students interested in economics and policy studies build a valuable background in ecological analysis and environmental management. Basic courses in biology, chemistry, economics, government, and mathematics are combined with advanced courses in areas such as environmental law, environment and resource economics, politics and the environment, and natural resource management. A clinic course enables small groups of students to work together to complete field work, analyses, report preparation, and oral seminar presentations in fulfilling a specific environmental project. Offered to CMC and Scripps students (Pitzer students must take this as an off-campus major).
