The Department of Environmental Science and Policy offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Environmental Planning and Policy. The combination of these two disciplines recognizes the inherent interconnection in conjunction with ESP's basic environmental science core courses. The degree is designed to prepare students for graduate school and careers in federal, state, and local government; the private sector; nonprofit organizations; and citizen advocacy groups. Many of our graduates have immediately entered professions in landscape design, regulatory compliance, land-use or community planning, urban renewal, environmental consulting, education, and as environmental technicians.
