MHEO 450 Environmental Health & Justice

This course examines the interdependency and interrelationships humans have with the natural and built environment, focusing on population health consequences. Students examine pressing environmental health challenges, including climate change, population growth, water and air pollution, food quality and scarcity, toxins, occupational hazards, and waste production. Students study how poverty and inequality exacerbate such concerns, examining environmental racism, gentrification, natural resource extraction, toxic dumping, and other challenges. Environmental justice serves as a guiding framework as students analyze the impact and potential of policy frameworks.
