Students can prepare for careers as environmental activists with Antioch University New England's Master of Science in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Advocacy for Social Justice and Sustainability. The unique, five-term program trains students to become professional public interest advocates and grassroots organizers working for ecological sustainability, social justice and democratic control of corporations. As concentration director Steve Chase says, "New Hampshire activist Granny D probably said it best: 'Democracy is not something we would have; it is something we do. ' " Combining scholarship with activism, the program is tailored for recent graduates and working professionals of all backgrounds who are concerned about the environment and social justice.
