CORE 464 - Is my Social Justice Your Social Justice?
Prerequisites: Core seminar, required for graduation CORE 101 through CORE 105 and at least sixth semester standing
This course will investigate the relationships between social policy and social justice, and the implications of power, race, gender, and marginalization issues upon social justice. It begins by considering the various definitions of social justice and proceeds to study how social policy pursues different potential visions of social justice. The impact of social policy on justice as a concept and as a practice will also be studied. The effect of social justice and social policy upon racial, gender, economic, and ethnic inequality will be studied both as perceived in our lives and through our institutions. Social justice and injustice as played out before us and reported on by the media in various forms, will be fodder for discussion. Inevitably, it seems, there will be current issues that surface in which students will be able to study what they learn in class through the lens of what they are seeing unfold around them.
