Minor in Environmental Justice
The Department of Natural Science offers a minor in Environmental Justice. Environmental Justice is concerned with the process through which inequalities arise from social, political, and environmental decision making, actions, and policies. At the local, regional, national, and international levels, environmental justice is interested in the mechanisms that give rise to class, gender, and racial disparities.
This interdisciplinary minor integrates community based learning, laboratory/field work, and GIS (Geographical Information Systems) into required courses.
