Global Justice immersion

The global justice immersion examines attempts to create lasting peace and social justice on the international scale. Courses in philosophy and the social sciences help students to understand concepts of human rights, world poverty, and global solidarity. The immersion is well suited for students considering careers in law, politics, or public policy related fields.

Notes about this immersion:

  • Students must select courses from at least two different disciplines. Students majoring in philosophy, sociology and anthropology, international and global studies, or political science must choose two of the three required courses from outside their respective major.
