Social Justice

The social justice minor falls under the global politics and societies (GPS) department which includes four separate major programs of study in sociology, religious studies, political science, and international studies and one minor program of study in social justice. Each of the programs uses an interdisciplinary approach with some shared courses and collaborative teaching based on the common research and teaching interests of faculty members. The social justice minor challenges students to think about power, inequality, diversity, and justice in local, national, and global contexts.
