Social and Economic Justice

Assistant Professor: Adams (Coordinator)

The Social and Economic Justice minor is designed to provide students with a framework to address the causes, consequences, and expressions of social and economic inequalities. The core curriculum consists of either ECON 110 or ANTH 334, either SOC 240 or HIST 338, and either PHIL 334 or PSCI 242. In addition to these core courses, students are also required to take three electives from the following list. The three electives must be from at least two different departments. Students are free to take additional core courses as electives, but a course may not count as both a core course and an elective.
