Graduate Teaching Assistant for Marin Skidmore, Amy Ando
Access to food and a healthy environment varies across rural/urban location, race, gender, and income in the U.S. Students in this course will analyze questions of "food justice" and "environmental justice" through the lens of economic theory. Students will learn important concepts in the scholarship of minority cultures, learn facts about how food security and experience of environmental quality varies among groups in the U.S., and learn how to use economic theory to understand those patterns and analyze policies to correct inequities.

Applies economic tools to analyze environmental problems and public policy formation.

Through this course, you will build your capacity for critical thinking and problem-solving.
