SOCI 105 - Introduction to Social Justice


3 Credit(s)

In this introductory course, we consider the meanings and dimensions of social justice, we critically examine various forms of injustice, and we engage in social justice work through participation in a service-learning project with a campus partner. We will begin by defining social justice and describing conceptual frameworks for thinking about social justice, then we explore various issues of inequality and oppression, examining their historical background, reading personal descriptions or narratives and finally, considering people’s efforts to challenge inequality and oppression. Throughout the course, you will be engaged in a service learning project with the Center for Diversity that will allow you to gain experience and sills working to create social justice in our campus community. Fall and Spring.
