ESPM Tracks

Planning your undergraduate program

The Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management (ESPM) major and associated minors have a great deal of flexibility. They are built around an integrated core of classes that stress the linkages between science, management, policy, education, and business industries. During your freshman year, you will take a combination of communication, basic and applied sciences, policy, and economic classes, as well as electives that fulfill your liberal education requirements. During your sophomore year, you are strongly encouraged to work with your faculty advisor and declare one of the major's five tracks to begin tailoring the ESPM program to your career aspirations.

Many incoming students know which track they are leaning toward. Based on the direction you might be leaning and results of placement tests, we will work with you to tailor your selection of basic math and science courses accordingly.
