HOD-807 Social & Ecological Justice

4 semester credits
This foundational course in social and ecological justice is designed to enable students to develop the competencies they need to recognize and integrate social and ecological justice - at the interpersonal, organizational, societal and global levels - into their practice and scholarship. Students will develop understandings of how social, economic, and ecological justice is defined and manifested in various societies. Students analyze these concepts and consider actions that promote more just societies. In addition to its focus on cognitive and intellectual understanding, this course emphasizes effective use of self to prepare students to take meaningful action in a wide range of interpersonal, organizational, and societal contexts. Importantly, we will pay close attention to power and systemic sources of inequality throughout the semester.
Delivery Method: Online
Grading Default: Letter
