Environmental Policy and Analysis
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT
Founded in 1965, the Middlebury College Environmental Studies Program is the oldest undergraduate ES program in the United States. Our program brings together a community of scholars and students engaged in the study of the human relationship to the environment from many different directions, across 24 departments on our campus. Our ten core faculty members and forty affiliated faculty colleagues together offer an interdisciplinary major and minor. Both foster in students a shared base of knowledge across the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Three introductory core courses, Natural Science and the Environment, Conservation and Environmental Policy, and Nature’s Meanings: The American Experience, prepare students to focus their studies in one of fourteen disciplines: Conservation Biology, Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Geology, Conservation Psychology, Environmental Economics, Environmental Policy, Geography, Human Ecology, Architecture and the Environment, Creative Arts, Environmental History, Environmental Nonfiction, Literature, Religion Philosophy and the Environment. Two-thirds of all environmental studies majors study abroad for one semester at schools and programs across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Australia. Our senior majors collaborate on a community-connected learning project in partnership with local environmental organizations in the Senior Seminar. ES majors and minors graduate with in-depth knowledge of the American story of human-environmental interaction, but also recognize that there are other stories, often strikingly different, from other parts of the world. With 900+ graduates, our alums work in environmental fields as entrepreneurs, scientists, policy makers, scholars, consultants, teachers, volunteers, activists, and founders of non-profits.

Natural Resources
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The Natural Resources curriculum combines coursework from disciplines within and outside the Rubenstein School to produce an individualized major focused on an ecological theme or human/environment relationship. Students may choose to concentrate their studies in one of three natural resources concentrations. Resource Ecology Resource Ecology explores the biology and ecology of plants and animals in both aquatic and terrestrial systems and allows students to select courses around specific individual interests. Students can concentrate their studies on areas such as conservation biology, ecosystem analysis, or ecological dimensions of environmental quality. Resource Planning Resource Planning explores interactions among individuals, communities, and society with nature, resources, and the environment. It allows students to select courses around specific individual interests such as natural resource planning; community, policy and economic dimensions of resource planning; and international dimensions of resource planning. Integrated Natural Resources The Integrated Natural Resources (INR) option provides a broad natural resources education, giving students considerable flexibility in selecting courses. It is for students who have strong interests in natural resources and the environment, clear academic direction, and the motivation to develop a well-focused, personally meaningful course of study. Students in INR have developed concentrations in environmental education, sustainable resource management, resource conservation, international resource issues, and spatial analysis of natural resources.

At Saint Michael's you'll find small, personalized, challenging economics classes taught by a group of dedicated faculty who bring diverse philosophical perspectives to the classroom, who care deeply about student learning, and who try to make economics relevant and fun. Your first courses will teach you about key economic concepts and the role of markets, along with how to measure and interpret Gross Domestic Product (GDP), unemployment and price levels. You'll examine economic instability through a study of causes and policy prescriptions from two major opposing schools of thought: Classical and Keynesian. You'll learn about interest rates and the Federal Reserve and consider current policy debates on international trade, monetary and fiscal policy, the deficit, economic growth and productivity. You'll also have an introduction to how economists interpret the everyday decisions of consumers, businesses and workers and apply economic analysis to real-world questions like minimum wage, business profits, taxes, outsourcing and environmental policies. Later courses cover statistical thinking as applied to such topics as probability distributions, regressions, correlation, analysis of variance and so on. Advanced macro- and micro-economics classes in our department delve deeper into theories and policies surrounding income and price level, interest rates and monetary and fiscal policy. You'll more closely examine market failures and government involvement in the economy. Your studies will culminate as a senior in a research thesis. You will prepare an original research proposal on a topic that interests you, conduct research, and present your results with close faculty guidance from start to finish. Economics opens up many job opportunities. As an economics major you will learn analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills that are in demand by many firms and government agencies. As an Economics major you will have the opportunity to conduct research on and off campus.

Social Analysis and Research
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Brown University in Providence, RI
The Sc.B. concentration in Social Analysis and Research provides both a conceptual and a working knowledge of the techniques for data collection and analysis used for social research in academic and non-academic environments. The centerpiece of the concentration is a rigorous and comprehensive collection of courses: (1) that develop an understanding of the principles underlying the processes of data collection and analysis; and (2) that train students in the application of advanced statistical techniques for data description and analysis. The concepts and skills learned in these courses are reinforced through engagement in applied research with Sociology faculty and/or internships with local organizations in the for profit and not-for-profit sectors. Concentrators also take courses that provide grounding in the theoretical approaches to social phenomena that are foundational to social research. Graduates develop an understanding of the concepts and processes that underlie the issues studied by sociologists and the analytic techniques that allow sociologists to understand social relations and individual behavior. Students in this concentration develop the pragmatic and logical skills that will prepare them for a career in social research, whether basic research (such as found in academia or research institutions) or applied (such as found in policy and marketing research).
