The University of Iowa is offering a new major: environmental planning and policy.

This major is an interdisciplinary effort between the Departments of Geography, Political Science and Anthropology. It teaches students to analyze environmental issues from a social perspective.

Only a few other universities offer this field of study.

Graduates of the major will have job opportunities with companies looking to increase their sustainability.

    • Sorry for not posting more information originally. Here’s a link to the major’s webpage: http://www.uiowa.edu/~geog/epp/index.shtml. I believe the major started this fall, but that’s not entirely clear. It looks like all of the required classes are ones that were already in existence, so I don’t see why someone couldn’t start the major whenever he/she wanted to.
