Environmental Policy, Governance and Social Justice

  • Environmental Policy, Governance and Social Justice

Qualifications

Overview

To make just and sustainable decisions for the environment and our wellbeing, we must learn to see how politics, social behaviour, and business economics can both cause and improve issues. Supply and demand for products and services can lead to problems such as pollution, slave labour and workers' rights, and indigenous land disputes.

At UC, you will examine global sustainability and social equity issues and learn how to respond with actionable change to communities and businesses.

Note: This new major is subject to Te Pōkai Tara | Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due December 2021.
