This minor is designed for students who wish to bridge their primary major of study with an investigation of the complexities of environmental and social justice. The minor complements and enriches students’ studies in a host of fields, including public health, urban planning, public administration, community organizing, humanitarian aid, engineering, and law.  Over the course of the curriculum, students come to better understand the inextricably connected systems that underlie environmental inequities and the disproportionate impacts on marginalized communities, ranging from local levels to global arenas.
