ESCI Interest Areas


This list provides ideas for strategically clustering your coursework around specific topics of interest.

This list is intended to be a guide you can use along with the ESCI “tip sheet” and not a comprehensive list because courses are always changing.

Remember that ESCI majors can only count ONE class in THREE of the four core areas (Social Science, Policy, Humanities, and Sustainable Design and Practice) for their major requirements.

** Area 3A LS = Life Science | Area 3A EPS = Earth and Physical Science | ELP = Environmental Leadership Program **
