Requirements for the Social Justice Certificate
The challenge of social justice is to evoke a sense of responsibility for one’s community. Any community must address the problem of achieving social justice so it can cope compassionately with social injustices and resolve for this. Graduates who complete this certificate and those who have experience working with a specific population that is oppressed may have favorable job prospects in the areas of counseling, social welfare, humanitarian careers, victim advocacy, social justice consulting or corrections.
