Using interdisciplinary and multi-method approaches to study, research, and activist
work, such as evidenced within Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x and Indigenous cultures, Social
Justice Studies challenges common sense notions, perceptions, and enactments of race,
gender, sexuality, economics, Pedagogy, Law, government, and Consciousness itself.
More specifically, the discipline analyzes injustices, such as how racism, sexism,
and homophobia are manifested through discrimination, economic disparities, and violence.
Furthermore, Social Justice Studies examines social policies that aim to alleviate
injustices and create a more equitable society through the collaborative engagement
of academic, local, and global communities.
Social Justice Studies has three Associate Degrees for Transfer:
