ASU touts prospect of ‘green’ jobs for social justice majors

Arizona State University is offering students a chance to obtain a Bachelor’s or Masters degree in “Social Justice and Human Rights.”

According to the university’s website, the bachelor’s program “prepares students for lives spent advocating for social justice and protecting human rights in local, national, and global contexts.”

Students who choose the social justice major are allowed to pick from “three uniquely theoretical and applied areas of focus,” categorized as “advocacy and social change,” “critical trauma studies and everyday humanitarianism,” and “materialism, intersectionality, and inequality.”

The school explains that the program is interdisciplinary and will give students an opportunity to take classes from different academic fields such as Political Science and Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Specifically, the students participating in the degree program could register for dozens of possible courses, including “Grassroots Social Movements,” “Hate Speech, Manifestos, and Radical Writings,” and “Power and American Democracy.”

According to the course description, “Grassroots Social Movements” is a three-unit social and behavioral sciences class that will count toward the “Advocacy and Social Change” focus area. Students enrolled in the course will explore how “groups mobilize collectively to produce social, economic, and cultural change” in the U.S.

Makes art history studies seem worthwhile.

I guess these graduates will apply for government jobs or else jobs in bloated college administrations as “diversity” administrators. Those who can claim minority status will get those jobs, and the others may actually have to work for a living.

I suspect that having a degree in social justice will be about as helpful for getting an industrial job as a criminal conviction. Either credential suggests that the applicant may cause trouble for the employer.

“critical trauma studies”

What the heck is this?

Embarrassing. How do we get control of the board that certifies these classes? Social Justice should not be a degree. It’s a fucking imaginary thing anyway. Human Rights could be an interesting Liberal Art… but we all know it’s absolute garbage.

Jast sad
