What is Social Justice Studies?

Social Justice Studies (SJS) explores the ideals of justice, the realities of injustice, and practical solutions to bridge the gap between the two. SJS covers a broad range of issues including economic justice, environmental justice, criminal justice, and fundamental human rights. It also covers a broad range of solution sets including policy-making, community organizing, social protest and restorative justice. Social Justice Studies at Miami is rooted in Sociology but builds connections to many programs and offices across campus.
