EEP and Graduate Degree Are Now STEM Designated Degrees

We are proud to announce that our Environmental Economics and Policy (EEP) major and our graduate Applied Economics program were both named STEM designated degree programs this week!⁠

A STEM designated degree program is an academic program that falls under one or more of the approved categories from the United States government. The programs in the STEM designated list have been recognized by the government for their focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics. The STEM designation has special implications for international students who are studying in the United States, as well as funding for certain research opportunities. ⁠
