B.A. in Sociology with a Concentration in Social Inequality and Social Justice
The Social Inequality and Social Justice concentration enables students to pursue jobs in local, national and international agencies, which deal with issues of poverty, war and human rights.
Students could work for non-governmental organizations ranging from refugee resettlement to social advocacy to public health. Oxfam, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, and the Urban League are just some of the places where a concentration like this would apply.
This degree would prepare students to pursue advanced degrees in the social sciences, law, public health, and public policy.
