Why Study Social Justice

Why Study Social Justice

Understand Cause and Consequences of Unjust Social Institutions

Social Justice Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the causes and consequences of unjust social institutions, theoretically rigorous explorations of belief systems and practices that contribute to inequality, and empirically informed evaluation of social change solutions and strategic interventions.

Evaluate Social Inequality

Evaluating social inequalities through the lens of multiple disciplines and the commitment to applied study are core strengths of this academic discipline.

Facilitate the Exchange of Ideas

Social Justice Studies also facilitates the exchange of ideas and critically thinking about local and global ideals of justice.
