Environmental Policy, BA
What is the study of Environmental Policy?
This interdisciplinary program prepares students to enter professional fields concerned with the sustainability of the human and natural environment. The Environmental Policy program consists of a core, and specialization electives. The core incorporates the interdisciplinary foundation of Huxley College’s approach to the study of the environment. Environmental policy concentrates studies in public policy development, law, and methods and processes of planning and decision making. The specialization elective component of the program is flexible. It allows students to develop an area of special interest, concentrating on a minor in an academic discipline, or to select from a number of thematically oriented clusters of courses.
