Champlain College

These days, most people will express concern about the environment, but there are only a handful of people who will devote their lives to making sure it’s protected. Worried about climate changes? Water issues? Fracking?

One of the only degree programs of its kind in the country, the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Policy program gives you the knowledge and skills to join the growing group of environmental professionals who are making policy decisions about these and other complex issues and multi-dimensional problems that affect the world we live in.

Take advantage of the unique learning opportunity offered by being located in Vermont, one of the most environmentally progressive states in the country, and at Champlain College—which has won numerous awards for being on the leading edge of sound environmental practices in higher education.

Unlike a typical program in environmental studies, the Environmental Policy major is focused less on theoretical aspects 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 to market your degree to a potential employer. This major zeros in on:

Human behaviors
Practical approaches to promoting change
Policies, politics and practices
Systems thinking
