Social Justice

Justice

Overview

Social Justice involves all people in all societies having equal access to wealth, health, wellbeing, justice, and opportunity.

Studying a Social Justice pathway allows you to delve into the social, cultural, political, historical, and economic issues that relate to this concept in the UK and on a global scale.

Modules

Please note that this pathway is an ‘open pathway’ in that it is not set in stone, and you are free to select relevant optional modules from across the University – with guidance from your Personal Tutor and our Liberal Arts Director of Undergraduate Studies – to suit the aspect of Social Justice that you are exploring. The optional modules listed below represent an illustration of the route which you might take through the pathway, but many other variations are possible.

"The freedom and encouragement to carry out independent research from the first year at Warwick, combined with my core Liberal Arts module ‘Art and Revolution’, inspired and developed my deep interest in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). This experience massively shaped the Social Justice pathway I chose. Focusing on the MENA region, my pathway has allowed me to gain insight into the area from socio-political, economic, psychological, legal, and cultural angles through modules such as ‘Politics and Culture in the Middle East’ and ‘Violence, Rights, Justice, and Peace in the Middle East’.

"I hope to use the knowledge gained on the pathway, and the training I have received in Liberal Arts, to pursue the Warwick Master’s programme Humanitarian Engineering to pursue a career in the Middle East—tackling complex problems such as water scarcity by engineering effective solutions that take into account cultural, geopolitical, and infrastructural influences."
