Gain hands-on experience working with various populations with Marian’s Social Justice Program.
The Marian University Bachelor of Science in Social Justice program prepares students to work with marginalized groups and help bring equality to communities at the city, state, and national levels.
Individuals in the BS in Social Justice program will explore the connections between the ideals of justice, the realities of injustice, and practical solution sets to bridge the gap between the two. At the same time, they will gain hands-on experience with local organizations and institutions such as shelters, health advocacy programs, community centers, domestic abuse services, and social service agencies.
Students in the Bachelor of Science in Social Justice program gain a broad understanding of how ethics, philosophy, human rights, and history intersect with power, diversity, and broad social issues. Those with this degree pursue either graduate school or careers in social service, social policy analysis, mediation and intervention, and social justice advocacy.
