Harvard Students Can Now Take Courses To Earn A ‘Social Justice Certificate’
Harvard University hopes to breed a new generation of Social Justice Warriors, if its new course offering is any indication. The iconic university is now offering graduate students an opportunity to earn a “Social Justice Certificate” by way of online courses.
Harvard’s course offerings include, but aren’t limited to, the below:
- Chocolate, Culture, and the Politics of Food
- Readings in Black Radicalism
- Who Lives, Who Dies: An Introduction to Global Health and Social Medicine
- Microfinance: Financial Services for the Poor
- The Minimum Wage Debate
For conservatives who scoff at the very sound of the term ‘social justice,’ their blood pressure should return to equilibrium after learning that Harvard won’t be teaching curriculum about debatably vague and subjective terms like ‘privilege,’ but rather focus on economic and policy issues.
According to Campus Reform, Harvard isn’t the only institution to offer a graduate certificate in social justice– Loyola University Chicago, Iowa State University, and the University of Southern California-Price School of Public Policy have all provided such courses in recent years.
Over/under on how long it takes someone to post a photo of their Harvard Social Justice Certificate in a thread on Facebook to win an argument involving Tomi Lahren: I’m saying no later than the day these bad boys are handed out.
