Undergraduate Minor

Twenty-first century students need global perspectives on citizenship that are informed by and can contribute to processes of civic engagement locally and in all parts of the world. This minor encourages students to recognize how social justice, critical consumption of goods and ideas and civic engagement intersect. It reinforces the many ways that our students are already engaged as citizens, and it helps solidify their power to effect real change.


As minors in social justice, students will hone skills in critical thinking, oral and written discourse and problem solving so that they can reflect on their own moral values and civic responsibilities. They will also critically assess how they are defined and influenced by various sources such as media and institutions that describe and prescribe our and others’ cultures and learn to understand others’ beliefs and values despite differences. Finally, social justice minors will engage in dialogue to resolve conflicts and design solutions by working in a collaborative manner to create change.
