“purports to give students “the knowledge to analyze current social ills and the practical skills to combat them”
As I have repeatedly suggested, we are reaching a point where left wing ideology in academia is eclipsing and in some cases, replacing, real scholarship.
Campus Reform reports:
Hamline Univ. offers social justice major complete with ‘Gender Politics’ course
A Minnesota university is offering a social justice degree with courses ranging from “Gender Politics” to “Diversity and Education.”
Hamline University’s social justice major purports to give students “the knowledge to analyze current social ills and the practical skills to combat them, while developing skills related to political and legal systems.”
Concentrations in the major have included Native American Studies, Environmental Quality and Economic Development, and Race and Racism and participants in the program have gone on to careers in politics, law enforcement, and education.
Courses offered in the major include “Gender Politics,” “Diversity and Education,” “The Role of Conflict in Social Change,” “Philosophy of Nonviolence,” and “Sexuality, Gender Identity, and the Law.”
The major’s FAQ page claims that there are around 25-30 social justice majors at Hamline at any given time.
Campus Reform contacted Hamline University Young Americans for Liberty, but did not obtain comment in time for press.
Hamline directed Campus Reform to social justice program director Valerie Chepp, but Chepp only forwarded this correspondent’s email to Hamline’s media relations department.
