Sociology - Environmental Studies
How do people's experiences of and knowledge about environmental issues differ by race, class, gender and nationality? How do those differences shape perspectives on environmental problems and ecological damage such as species decline, toxic contamination, air and water pollution, especially now that the rate of damage is increasing?
If these questions inspire your critical thinking, our Sociology - Environmental Studies combined major is an excellent choice for you.
