SOC 350 Social Justice

This upper-division seminar presents a social science analysis of social justice using a series of case studies.

Contemporary and historical case studies focus discussion on the social context of issues such as the human rights of women, children, and refugees; economic justice associated with the international debt; and environmental protection.
