We challenge you to think critically and to broadly explore issues of far-reaching significance in today's world. We help you search for solutions to these problems. Justice Education seeks to provide a moral and intellectual context for the critical examination of the root causes of societal problems and how to develop creative and thoughtful responses to those concerns. We accomplish that through courses structured in theory, experience, reflection, and practice.
We offer a minor in justice studies as well as a student-designed major. We provide an interdisciplinary program, and the opportunity for students to select courses from areas such as religious studies, philosophy, sociology, social work, psychology, literature, art, economics, and business. This approach has proved beneficial for students interested in making connections between issues. The Justice Education Program also offers programs for the entire campus which help to foster awareness of critical social concerns.
Students graduating with the minor or student-designed major have gone on to many diverse careers in law, professional, and doctoral programs; careers with domestic and international non-profit organizations; teaching, and business.
