Environmental Policy Analysis
For decades, people have asked the question, “Are there limits to growth?” Can people continue to consume more and more of the earth’s resources indefinitely? As we increase our consumption, can the earth continue to process or absorb the byproducts of our production? Answers to these questions and the understanding of how to address them require knowledge of science, economics, political science and business.
Strong, sustainable solutions to environmental problems require critical thinking — an interdisciplinary skill — combined with deep, specific knowledge of the problem — a major-based skill. At Mary Baldwin College, students with an Environmental Policy Analysis minor are expected to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to undertake competent, complex problem-solving in a major that has an important connection to environmental problem-solving.
Environmental Policy Analysis is available as a minor in coordination with a major in Biology, Business, Chemistry,Economics, or Political Science.
Environmental Policy Analysis is a part of MBC’s School of Science.
