Social problems and Environmental problems are seen as separate issues, making it difficult to see how thoroughly intertwined they are and how often they both involve issues of Justice. The MALS concentration in Social and Environmental Justice Studies frames these issues ecologically to illuminate pathways and processes for justice. The goal is to address both the environmental and the social in tandem, as they exist in the world. The Social and Environmental Justice Studies concentration brings together theory and methods to illuminate these complex, connective issues and to spur change.
