From Colleen Pedlow ’17:

Are you passionate about social justice issues? Are you interested in exploring how individuals and social institutions can promote justice? If so, come to Russell House at noon this Thursday to learn more about the Philosophy department’s exciting new social justice track! Thai food will be provided.

The social justice track seeks to recognize the importance of philosophy in addressing questions of human rights, equality, and social responsibility. Philosophical analyses paired with careful argumentation provide important tools for grappling with real world injustices. Students who choose the social justice track will have the opportunity to build their own social justice concentration within the philosophy major composed of 5 courses centered on a topic of their choice.

All students who are interested in, or curious about, pursuing a major/minor in philosophy are welcome to the department’s open house this Thursday. Come to ask questions, meet students and faculty and enjoy a delicious meal!

Date: Thursday, November 5
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Place: Russel House
