Social Justice


What’s the most effective way to create a just and peaceful world? Students minoring in Social Justice grapple with this question daily.

Through coursework and projects in disciplines like philosophy, politics, and economics, Social Justice faculty and students discuss moral issues of seeking justice, social and political conditions, work done through free market arrangements and by governments and NGOs, and students own ideas about how and why social justice is important. Many students take their studies from the classroom to internships and social justice projects of their own.
