We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn's Pre-College Summer Sociology: Social Justice course provides high school students the opportunity to explore how race, class and gender play a role in inequality and social justice at a nationally ranked public university campus.
How will you make a difference?
Offered during Session 2, our Sociology: Social Justice course uses a variety of films and field trip to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum to introduce students to sociological and human rights conceptions of social justice and their relationship to historical and present-day inequalities.
The course will focus on cases related to race, class, and gender. By investigating social justice primarily in a North American context, we will explore the social structures and organizations that frame the choices people make and possibilities for social justice. Through short readings and films, engaged discussion, interactive group activities, and engagement with different types of primary sources, we will examine how social justice and human rights can work together to promote social change.
