The minor encompasses the interactions of social policy, social equity, scientific principles, and environmental stewardship. By approaching these complex issues from a comprehensive perspective important societal challenges such as the interplay between climate change and poverty or resource use and prosperity, can be addressed and solutions proposed. Our goal is to engage our students in a dynamic, interdisciplinary learning experience, and to enhance the employment opportunities of its graduates in the fast growing environmental and sustainability industries.
