Social Justice, Minor
A key component of the mission of Georgian Court University is “the will to translate concern for social justice into action.” Justice is one of the core values of Georgian Court University. The minor in Social Justice will give students an opportunity to nurture their desire and strengthen their skills to create a more just and compassionate world.
Students who complete the Social Justice minor will:
- develop and nurture a commitment to justice for all people;
- identify and critically analyze situations of social injustice in a variety of contexts; and
- gain knowledge and skills across several disciplines to equip them for lives devoted to civic engagement in the interest of social justice.
