Why Study Social Justice?

Merrimack College’s social justice program offers majors the chance to turn their passion for change, human rights and a more just world into a career.

As a social justice major, you will receive the knowledge to prepare for advocacy and human-rights work within local community organizations and national and international non-governmental organizations like the United Nations. You will develop a strong theoretical understanding of ideas of social justice and participate in real-world learning in the field.
