What is Social Justice Studies?

Social Justice Studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the causes and consequences of social inequities; types and forms of social change; and applied approaches to advancing social justice and equity. Social Justice Studies examines both the historical roots and contemporary forms of injustice and emphasizes applied and community-engaged learning, as well as more traditional academic study.

The Social Justice Studies minor is housed in the College of Arts & Sciences and administered by the Director of Gender Studies. Participating programs include Gender Studies and African American Studies, as well as the departments of Anthropology, Communication, English, Geosciences, History, Philosophy & Religion, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.
