Critical Perspectives on Social Justice and the Common Good - Minor
A minor or other concentration, such as an option or specialization, is a secondary set of courses that can be completed as you earn a degree in your major area of study.
As an interdisciplinary program, the minor in Critical Perspectives on Social Justice and the Common Good calls upon the collected insights of various academic disciplines and is designed to prepare students to be responsible critics of contemporary societies and effective agents for positive social transformation. In this program, you will reflect on the causes and structures of injustice and approaches to social change at interpersonal, communal, national and global levels.
As a central concept in Catholic thought on social justice, the minor will explore the role of the "common good" in the religious, ethical, philosophical and social science traditions. Through a community service-learning framework, this minor creatively engages faculty, students, and community partners in local and international responses to inequality and marginalization.
This program is coordinated by St. Thomas More College, under the academic authority of the College of Arts & Science, and is open to students in any Arts and Science degree program. For more information, visit our program website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
