Socio-Economic Justice (Graduate Certificate)

The graduate certificate in socioeconomic justice addresses the social and political implications of global and local economies for economic inequality and social justice. This transdisciplinary program fuses interests in political economy, socioeconomic inequality and analysis of related policies and their consequences for social welfare in areas of income, housing, employment and education.

This program complements the current graduate curriculum at ASU and is structured to allow students to draw upon a combination of core courses in justice and social inquiry and coursework from units from throughout the university. The approach is transdisciplinary (i.e., inclusive of courses in a variety of disciplines but transcending disciplinary boundaries through an integrative core curriculum), intersectional (i.e., considering gender, race, class, nation and sexual relations) and transnational (courses that examine global and local concerns). It will strengthen student understanding of the justice implications of the convergence of social and economic inequalities in the global economy.
