Seek to understand the relationship between human impacts on the Earth and its climate and social inequalities among human communities in order to identify just solutions to the climate crisis.
Recognizing that ecological degradation and disconnection from the land is a longstanding geo-historical phenomenon that is further worsened by the climate crisis, programs focus on environmental justice and unpacking the various dimensions of climate justice from local to global contexts.
In Climate and Environmental Justice courses and programs, you will gain a deep understanding of both the systemic inequalities and root causes of environmental and climate inequalities and explore the possibilities of more just futures from the point of view of ecological sustainability and community resilience.
You will develop a solid foundation in one or more of the following areas of study:
- Indigenous resilience
- International inequality
- Neoliberal capitalism
- Green colonialism
- Critical race and gender studies
- Environmental humanities
- Eco media
Join us to learn how different forms of inequality and oppression intersect with the causes and consequences of a changing climate.
