The SOSJ minor is comprised of 18-credits in four semesters. Please see the catalog for details.

Not necessarily. Check the attributes for the course on Zagweb, or consult with your advisor, to determine whether a specific course carries the social justice designation, which will fulfill the University Core social justice designation requirement.

No – the SOSJ minor is a separate academic program. Only the courses specifically listed under the SOSJ minor in the catalog will count towards the minor. Social justice designated courses do not automatically qualify to be electives for the SOSJ minor.

Sufficient numbers of SOSJ courses will be available to allow flexibility in planning with various majors. Depending on their course loads, students are generally able to complete the minor in three to five semesters.
