Social Justice Transfer Tips

Students can earn a BA (Bachelor of Arts) in Social Justice.

Social Justice majors expand their knowledge integrating theory and engagement with "real world" field experiences. They approach social justice through the arts, history, literature, comparative religious studies, political science, philosophy, health education, and gender, women's and sexuality studies. 

Students prepare for employment and/or for graduate study in various fields through high-quality internships and educational experiences, including anthropology political science, law, criminology, health, the cultural sector, social services, business, nonprofit management, or public history projects. 

This major can be sequenced in four semesters. Students may transfer either sophomore or junior year and still complete the major. 

Students can complete the following course, if available, before transferring: PHIL:2402 Introduction to Ethics.

Students who plan to complete their AA degree at an Iowa community college should consider the 2 Plus 2 Guaranteed Graduation Plan. Use the 2 Plus 2 website and the Online Equivalency Guide to determine appropriate transfer course equivalencies. 

Prospective Social Justice transfer students should contact Prof. Leslie Schwalm (Gender, Women's and Sexuality Studies chair) or Prof. Pat Dolan (Social Justice Undergraduate Studies adviser) at for more information.
