This interdisciplinary program provides insight into the major societal forces influencing environmental issues. These include political agreements supporting legal and regulatory requirements, economics and the marketplace, environmental values, and technology. Students gain a technical background blended with a solid foundation in economics, political issues, environmental law, ethics, and communications.
