GPH 379 Environmental Justice

3 Credit(s) DIII V SR W-II
This course explores the issue of Environmental Justice in both domestic and international settings. The purpose of this course is to help students appreciate how environmental and social differences intertwine, to look critically at how environmental and social issues are framed, to understand how policy and institutional decisions and structures may create or exacerbate environmental conditions that affect historically marginalized and more vulnerable populations, and to attend to the experiences of marginalized communities and seek out solutions that benefit everyone, especially communities that are less powerful and often overburdened. Three lecture hours per week.  Not open to students who have received credit for GGR357.  Prerequisite: W-I course.
