Environmental Policy:

Social Sciences
In the last decade, itís become clear to governments and businesses that our current models of consumption and development are fundamentally flawed. Future decisions about the management of resources and waste will be deliberated with great consideration for both their immediate and long-term effects on the planet, and that means enormous demand for skilled experts able to develop sound environmental policy.

In the United States, this cultural shift is already under way, and employment of environmental policy experts is expected to grow dramatically over the coming decades. Indeed projections for this burgeoning field exceed those of all other sectors. This major is for people who not only want to discuss environmental concerns, but who also want to lead the way and devote their professional lives to addressing them.
