ADVOCACY & SOCIAL JUSTICE
Social justice is a field of study that examines the social and cultural dimensions of human organizations and advances ideas designed to promote the fair treatment of all people. Drawing upon our Catholic, Franciscan heritage, the Advocacy and Social Justice major provides students with an interdisciplinary academic experience that analyzes social problems from a critical perspective and encourages activism through community service, internships, and other experiential learning opportunities.
