School of Social Work
College of Education and Human Development
  • Program Type: Undergraduate free-standing minor
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits in this minor: 17 to 18
The social justice minor offers undergraduate students the opportunity to theorize about the meanings of social justice and practice "doing" social justice advocacy in community organizations. The minor is an interdisciplinary, cross-collegiate undergraduate program. Students create socially just communities and a respectful space for all opinions in the dialogue-based classrooms. Teaching faculty, students, and community groups become partners in creating and sharing in an authentic collective learning experience. The program is based on the belief in equity and fairness in every aspect of human experience and the importance of recognizing the struggles for liberation and the social movements of many peoples globally.
