Description

Social Justice Studies explores connections between the ideals of justice, the realities of injustice, and practical solution sets to bridge the gap between the two. Core courses in the major draw on literature in political sociology, social movements, and political philosophy to offer a sociologically-based foundation of knowledge and skills in the areas of social values and social change. The program does not seek to promote a singular approach to social justice issues but rather to encourage creative and practical thinking from multiple perspectives, with the goal of enhancing students’ level of informed citizenship.
