Social Justice Studies explores the important terrain between ideals of justice and everyday local, national, and global realities of injustice. Emphasizing interdisciplinary academic understanding as well as applied experience in community, the major inspires critical thinkers to draw upon rich legacies of scholars and activists who animate and sustain democratic movements for change. Students who wish to be informed citizens committed to strategic, accountable, and reflective engagement in business, government, non-profit, science, humanities, and artistic careers will find Social Justice Studies coursework helpful and inspiring.
