SSCI 100 Justice

3 hours

In this course, we wrestle with a question that the prophet Micah asks and answers in Micah 6:8, “O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” This question is as relevant in America today as it was in Israel in the 8th century BC. How do we live such a life in a time of injustice, hate, and violence? This course addresses this question by exploring the ways in which justice—or injustice—manifests itself in society, both domestically and globally.
