International Studies: Sustainability + Global Justice

There are more than seven billion people in the world. How has growth and demand on resources been managed, and what are our obligations to future generations?

The program is designed for the student who wants to engage in the emergent interdisciplinary field of sustainable development and global justice by stimulating a critical examination of political, social, historical and conceptual antecedents. The program provides a holistic perspective of topics such as civil society, participation and democracy, development politics and economics, environment and energy, gender and ethnicity, humanitarianism and human rights, and nutrition and health.
