Inequality, Race, and Justice, Minor

As our nation grapples with racial injustice people are considering new ways to elevate those who have been marginalized. This involves changing norms and how organizations function. It also involves greater awareness and understanding of our history, political system, and criminal justice apparatus. Students with a minor in Inequality, Race, and Justice will be better positioned to take roles in leadership and be among the innovators who will work for change and social justice both within and beyond established institutions.

The minor consists of 5 courses.

From sociology choose three of the following:

SOC 325Race and Ethnicity3
SOC 304Sociology of Deviance3
SOC 312Social Stratification3
SOC 328Social Change3
SOC 303Social Problems3

Choose two classes from two different departments listed below:

HIS 273African American Survey3
HIS 346Black Freedom Movement3
POL 241Public Policy3
POL 355Civil Liberties3
CRJ 375Alternatives Incarceration3
CRJ 265Principles Justice3

Note: Alternative courses for the minor may be considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the department of Sociology. Also, note that sociology majors can take an additional relevant course outside their major in consultation with the minor advisor to complete the minor.
