While criminal justice and legal studies are the official systems for justice in the United States the outcomes from those systems are not always just. Students experience this at a young age as justice and injustice play out in their own lives. At Saint Martin’s they are given the tools to communicate with others about justice and are inspired to seek out others like themselves who desire to think about justice in a wider way.
A complement to other academic programs at Saint Martin’s, the social justice minor fits hand-in-glove with religious studies, sociology, social work, criminal justice and legal studies, adding value to the students’ academic experience.
The program follows the best Liberal Arts tradition encouraging students to work toward social justice no matter what they will be doing for a living
