Social Justice Education Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs of Study

The Social Justice Education Certificate enables current classroom teachers the opportunity to understand themselves and learn to address inequities that exist in schools. Students will learn that they can both maintain high-quality content instruction and create a classroom with a social justice orientation; it is an approach to teaching, learning, and being that supports high-level thinking. To teach in contemporary classrooms requires a background in social justice pedagogy so that students are empowered and teachers understand their role in fostering change.
