Social Justice Minor Program Details
As a Social Justice minor, you'll learn the connection between “faith,” broadly conceived, and “justice,” variously defined, in order to begin to see patterns across diverse groups of people who engage in justice.
Many courses in the social justice minor include components that invite students to apply classroom learning to settings in the broader community through direct service, advocacy, and empowerment. Course content includes examination of global and domestic application of Catholic Social Teaching, as well as student action in the community.
This program takes place in light of the dignity, rights and responsibilities of all people as affirmed by Judeo-Christian heritage in the context of the American democratic system and an increasingly interconnected world.
As a Social Justice minor, you'll gain knowledge, experience, and training to enter into professional service that is already directly related to social justice. You'll also discover how your involvement and contribution to society—whatever your discipline—can be oriented toward social justice.
