Hastings College offers a concentration in peace, justice and social change through its Sociology Department (sociology, criminal justice and human services administrations concentrations are also offered. The peace, justice and social change program places significant emphasis on sociological theory, research methods, and the application of knowledge.
The major is built around a core of sociology classes, plus six classes looking at issues and practices specific to peace, justice, and social change topics. Students are also encouraged to pick electives based on a specific topical concentration, e.g. environmental justice. A service-learning component and an internship where students work through a non-profit agency are also required.
