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.
