Planning your major
The Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management (ESPM) major has a great deal of flexibility and is built around an integrated core set of classes that stress the linkages between science, management, policy, education, and business industries. During your freshman year, you will take a combination of communication, basic and applied sciences, policy, and economic classes, as well as electives that fulfill your liberal education requirements. During your sophomore year, you are strongly encouraged to work with your faculty advisor and declare one of the major's five tracks to begin tailoring the ESPM program to your career aspirations.
Many incoming students will know whether they are leaning toward the policy/education tracks, environmental science/management tracks, or corporate management track. Based on the direction you might be leaning and results of placement tests, we will work with you to tailor your selection of basic math and science courses accordingly.
