Environmental Justice Minor

Requirements for Minor in Environmental Justice

IES offers a minor in Environmental Justice (minimum 17 credit hours). The minor in Environmental Justice is an interdisciplinary minor intended to prepare transformative leaders to meet the social needs of those impacted by environmental injustice. The minor contains coursework and practical experience in three related avenues of inquiry: ethics/environmental ethics, environmental science and policy, and either regulation or history. This course of study will appeal to those interested in social or environmental policy, sustainability issues, public service, public advocacy, or similar forms of civic engagement. It will also appeal to those working toward a major in Integrated Environmental Science (IES), particularly if the student plans to work with environmental policy initiatives. Minor is open to majors in all disciplines. For course requirements, see the Department Chair.
