The graduate certificate in Social Justice is intentionally designed in direct consultation with the “best practices” of community-based organizations. It prepares people for faith-based leadership in social advocacy, community and labor organizing, and systemic social change. The program combines theoretical and practical learning in social justice and activism.
The certificate program is specifically designed for: (1) students who have completed an undergraduate degree and wish to deepen their understanding of social justice; (2) students in graduate programs who wish to add an advanced certificate in social justice; (3) professionals whose work in the field would be enhanced by a graduate-level credential.
