Social Policy Minor
No one wants to live in a world of injustice, but it takes a special person to learn the practical skills necessary to do something about it. As a social policy minor, you could work as a policy advocate, human services worker or administrator of a not-for-profit agency. Soon, you could be making a positive difference in areas like health care, criminal justice, education or labor.
Your courses will be interdisciplinary and experiential, focused on methods of social work, psychology, sociology and political science. You’ll also take peace, justice and conflict studies (PJCS) courses such as Mediation and Conflict-Healthy Groups to learn how to mediate disagreements and negotiate conflict effectively. Additionally, you’ll get hands-on experience interning at an agency of your choice.
A social policy minor at Goshen College will prepare you with the skills to care for people in a way that both nourishes relationships and makes a positive impact on the lives of others!
