About the course

Programme description

The Global Environment, Politics and Society (GEPS) programme offers interdisciplinary exploration and immersion in social scientific inquiry used to understand and address environmental issues. Students have a great amount of latitude to design their own course of interest, and can take many methodological, disciplinary, and integrative approaches. The core coursework combines the following:

  • environmental politics
  • environmental sociology
  • normative philosophy

But many students engage with a range of other social science disciplines as well. Students take coursework from fields across the University.
