Justice

We don’t just talk. We act.

Combine your passion for activism with the rigors and discipline of academics. Democracy and Justice Studies takes a deep-dive into how people both past and present have changed political and social orders. You'll explore how societies as a whole promote democracy and justice, and consider what that means for today and the future.

"The democracy and justice studies program taught me the power of curiosity and research – as well as how to communicate with people who have differing views. I’m fortunate I found a major that...gave me an understanding of deep institutionalized roots that make access to justice inequitable for so many. That understanding is essential to the practice of law."
