Environmental Justice Minor

Coordinator: Lisa Anne Zilney

This multidisciplinary minor offers students a theoretical and applied course of study in environmental justice, an emerging interdisciplinary field. It is designed for students seeking an increased involvement in the government and community life. The minor provides a solid foundation for those pursuing a graduate degree in Environmental Law as well as careers in federal, state and local agencies. Environmental Justice is increasingly among the considerations of both government policy makers and community organization.
