The Social Justice Minor gives students an opportunity to develop a secondary field of knowledge and expertise that will enable them to
- critically examine the values that constitute social justice in theory and practice,
- understand the principles of effective social activism, and
- formulate and evaluate policies that seek to address issues such as racism, violence, literacy, human rights, gender equity, gender expression, poverty, hunger, and conservation of the environment.
This minor will benefit students who seek a career in any aspect of public service, including government, law, medicine, social work, non-profit organizations, advocacy work, clergy, medicine, and education as well as those students who wish to engage themselves in the important issues and ideas surrounding social justice and diversity. Students in any major who are interested in devoting some of their energy to organizations that further the goals of social justice will find this minor a solid foundation for a lifetime of community activism.
