Social Justice Thematic Sequences

The objectives for the thematic sequences in social justice studies are:
  • to explain how various sociological and philosophical theories of justice contribute differently to human rights and social justice-based policies, programs, and declarations/covenants at both national and global levels;
  • to evaluate consistencies and disparities between micro- and macro-level efforts to achieve social justice;
  • to develop core sociological concepts and theories across the three levels of courses; 
  • to facilitate and guide personal insight and reflection for acting in a morally just way.
