Human Rights and Justice in the U.S.
This major explores the theme of human rights and justice, within the framework of a liberal arts education in American Studies. Social studies teachers are asked to teach students the impact of citizenship, and the courses in this major comprise the varied history of America in this regard.
The history courses in the major relate the concept of inequalities, rights, and justice throughout the course of history to the ways in which the people of each specific time period were affected. Law courses were included to present issues of human rights and criminal justice. Philosophy courses look at human rights and justice from a different angle.
