Do you love animals, the environment, or sustainable energy? Perhaps you see yourself working for a well-known organization such as Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund, or PETA. Or, maybe you want to work with a local animal shelter or environmental awareness nonprofit. If this describes you, then the Environment emphasis area may be of interest.
Many of the courses in this emphasis are offered through the Environmental Studies program, which may be a good option if you are looking for coursework that is more science-focused.
Students interested in the Environmental emphasis are required to take ECON 260: Principles of Microeconomics and Econ 261: Principles of Macroeconomics as well as four of the following, from at least three different departments:
ANTH 425 Environment and Anthropology
ECON 386 Environmental Economics
ENVS 301 Environmental Science I: Physical Systems
ENVS 302 Environmental Science II: Biological Systems
ENVS 303 Environment in the Social Sciences and Humanities
