Social Justice Education
An interdisciplinary curriculum promoting access to education throughout society
This competence area focuses on the preparation of educators and change agents who are able to understand and work effectively with social justice issues in traditional and non-traditional settings. Social justice education aims to promote full and equitable access to education for all members of society, and to use education as means for promoting social change.
Social Justice Education is an interdisciplinary competence with a solid foundation of core education courses. Students focusing on this competence can align themselves with any academic program, and might teach in some capacity after graduation. Students interested in social justice education may choose to concentrate on a specific issue such as gender equity in schools, programs for English learners, or rights for homeless students. Alternatively, students in this area might focus on a particular educational setting, such as an alternative school, an NGO educational outreach program or a diversity workshop organization.
