Social Justice Minor

The minor in Social Justice (SJ) is for undergraduate students who are interested in incorporating an in-depth awareness of social issues into their fields of study and careers. Humanities and social science classes included in the minor address issues of equity and inclusiveness in relation to historical, cultural, social, economic, political, and/or techno-scientific factors. Students develop the analytic skills, social understanding, and creative mindsets needed to become informed, ethical, and innovative problem solvers and leaders in an increasingly global and technological world. The SJ minor supports the missions of the Institute’s Strategic Plan.
