Environmental Policy Career Success

Why Environmental Policy?

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 graduates able to develop sound environmental policy.

Why Environmental Policy at Champlain?

Unlike a typical program in environmental studies, the Environmental Policy major at Champlain is focused less on the theoretical aspects of environmental science and more on the action-oriented practicalities of what you can do to envision bold solutions and change things for the better. This major will give you concrete, hands-on tools and experience applying them that will set you apart when it comes time to market your degree to a potential employer.
