Overview 

The program in Social Justice and Social Policy examines the essential connections between social values and practical policies. It unites elements in liberal arts study to bridge the analytic gap between ends and means. The concern with social justice speaks to the core educational commitments of Brandeis. This program does not seek to promote a particular ideological agenda, but rather to spark creative thinking about complex social problems. It carries the search for norms and principles into the wider arena of practical experience. By providing models for critical reflection, it challenges students to articulate their own value commitments in a spirit of constructive debate.
