Environment, Sustainability, and Policy Major is designed to introduce students to and ground them in the interdisciplinary study of environmental science, sustainability, and policy. These complex issues are shaped by both human and natural factors and interconnected with everything from the global economy to local cultural practices. This major’s integration across traditionally isolated lenses of natural and human sciences provides a unique perspective toward understanding, examining, and addressing the environment and sustainability.
