Environmental Sustainability

Environmental and Social Sustainability Concentration

The environmental and social sustainability concentration focuses on the social, economic, and political aspects of environmental sustainability.

Challenging coursework in various social sciences prepares students to work on such issues as environmental advocacy, conservation and sustainable development, land use and degradation, environmental education and agricultural extension, climate change, waste management, and alternative energy.

This track combines traditional environmental science coursework with applied sociology courses that emphasize international and community development and conservation.

You’ll have hands-on opportunities to work in areas of personal interest like peace education, legislative and foreign policy advocacy, community organizing, restorative justice and mediation, social justice and peace advocacy, human rights and immigrants’ rights.
