Sometimes there just aren’t enough college grads holding truly useless degrees and still living in their parents’ basements, so you have to invent whole new levels of uselessness. How about a degree in “Environmental Justice”? This sounds great to the student snowflakes at UC-Davis.
Campus Reform reports:
Students are demanding that the University of California-Davis create an “Environmental Justice” degree program because existing environmental studies courses are not focused on “social justice.”
A student group calling itself “Environmental Justice for Underrepresented Communities” has created an open letter and accompanying petition arguing that the “strong lack of intersectionality” in the school’s current agricultural and environmental science programs “is a major factor contributing to the continuation of systematic environmental injustices.”
Complaining that administrators have “ignored” its lobbying in the past, the group presents a list of demands designed to ensure that the new field of study places environmental studies firmly within the context of social justice.
Among its “short term” demands, for instance, are “collaboration with existing environmental justice faculty” to develop courses for the new program, as well as “the attendance and engagement of faculty and staff within the department at existing conversations on campus surrounding environmental justice and social justice.”
Nothing says “Hey Mom, what’s for dinner?” like a shiny new degree in the shiny new faux-field of “environmental justice.”
