Environmental Policy and Planning is an interdisciplinary major that draws courses from Geography, Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, and other disciplines. Work for this major includes introductory courses, methods courses, intermediate courses, and a track. Students choose one of two tracks: planning or policy, and course work required for the major depends on the student's choice of track. The Planning track has courses primarily in Urban and Regional Planning and Geography. Courses in the Policy track focus on Political Science and Geography. Both tracks have relevant courses in Anthropology.
