Environmental Politics and Policy (GVPT)

This concentration gives students an understanding of the forces shaping political behavior, the nature and workings of political institutions, and the ways in which both domestic and international structures constrain environmental policy responses. Some P&P students are interested in activism, others in policy analysis or law.  Check the "Alumni Careers" list to see all the things that are possible with a degree in Environmental Politics and Policy.
These requirements are for those following the General Education program and are declaring Fall 2016 and beyond - most of you fall into this category!



Dr. Isabella Alcaniz and Ms. Rachel Vierling, the ENSP Politics & Policy Academic Advisor in the GVPT Department, work as a team - and it is highly recommended that students meet with and get to know both during the semester.
