SJS 1 Social Justice and Inequalities.

The goal of this sequence is to introduce students to social justice studies from a sociological perspective, with particular focus on social inequalities. The objectives of the sequence are: (a) to explain how various sociological and philosophical theories of justice contribute differentially to human rights and social justice-based policies, programs, and declarations/covenants at both national and global levels; (b) to evaluate consistencies and disparities between micro- and macro-level efforts to achieve social justice; (c) to develop core sociological concepts and theories across the three levels of courses; (d) to facilitate and guide personal insight and reflection for acting in a morally just way.
