Social justice is an interdisciplinary minor that focuses on issues related to social inequities and marginalization.

The social justice minor aims to create well-informed citizens of students by offering them the opportunity for intense study of crucial issues that they will encounter in their careers as lawyers, physicians, policy makers, ministers, educators, and other social professionals.

Courses offered are from all three academic divisions; Humanities (Div. I), Social Studies (Div. II), and Science & Mathematics (Div. III); though the main course offerings are from Division II.


Experiential Learning

Students will have practical experience in the field with agencies that deal with social inequities as well as classroom work that encourages theory and analysis. This minor, with its practicum requirements, is a unique combination of curricular and extracurricular aspects of the Centre experience, bringing together internships, academic work in the classroom, community-based learning, and Bonner worksites, among other endeavors.

The minor can be designed as a major through a self-designed path of study. Contact your faculty advisor for details.
