Social Justice and Human Rights Programs at American Universities

Elsewhere, similar projects are taking root. Whitman College in Washington and Philander Smith College in Arkansas both have new programs on social justice. Brandeis University offers a minor in social justice and social policy. Grinnell College offers an award to young social justice leaders. Lake Forest College in Illinois also offers a minor. Saint Mary’s College of California just announced a new master’s degree concentration in social justice leadership. And the movement isn’t limited to private institutions: Arizona State University introduced a master’s degree in social justice and human rights last fall.

This option exists along with others:

Service Learning
Non-profit Administration
Public Administration
Social Entrepreneurship
International Relations
International Development
Health Care Administration
Public Health

My guess is most students will want to find a university in this area with a big service offering.
