Sociology: Social Inequality and Social Justice

Sociology is not just about studying society, but improving upon it for all concerned.

The social inequality and social justice concentration allows students to better understand how income, wealth and power are distributed around the city of Boston and around the world.

What are the implications of inequality in a society? Does inequality look the same the world over, or does it vary from time period to time period and place to place? What can and should be done to alter inequality in local communities, the nation at large, or societies around the world? Emmanuel College's mission of education and social justice are made manifest through the study of social inequality and social justice, providing students with the intellectual tools and professional experiences to bring these inequalities home and the opportunity to make a difference in the world.
