The curriculum of the Justice and Civil Leadership major encompasses both a comprehensive pre-law program and an interdisciplinary program in philosophy, politics and economics. First, the curriculum will require students to develop familiarity with relevant fields in both the humanities and social sciences with respect to different methodologies and making value judgments. Second, in order to prepare students to address complex and diverse societal issues in a variety of different professional areas, students will take courses that enable them to acquire the skills of critical thinking and normative evaluation necessary to understand and analyze these multifaceted issues. Third, the curriculum’s diversity with respect to both subjects and methods will enable students to exercise their independent judgement in framing research projects and evaluating methods, concepts and arguments relating to different research areas.
