Environmental Politics, Policy, and Economics
The Environmental Politics, Policy, and Economics concentration focuses on the study of the political, economic, historical, and cultural forces that shape environmental policies. Topics include: how environmental policies are made, which interests are most powerful in determining policies, how effective those policies are, and which groups are harmed or helped by those policy decisions. The concentration advisors are Professor Farnham and Professor Corson. Here is the course-list for the Environmental Politics, Policy, and Economics concentration.
