1 Graduate Certificate in Social Justice School of Social Research and Justice Studies College of Liberal Arts The Graduate Certificate in Social Justice is offered at the post-baccalaureate level for academic graduate credit through the School of Social Research and Justice Studies in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Nevada, Reno. Students currently enrolled in a graduate level program at the University of Nevada Reno or students who have already received a baccalaureate degree are eligible for admission to the certificate program. Certificate Purpose The Graduate Certificate in Social Justice provides a curriculum that complements existing graduate programs, both at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels. While specifically incorporating courses from the School s three departments and designed to enhance these programs, the Certificate will be of interest to students in other departments in the CLA and other colleges at UNR and to various agencies in the community. The Certificate in Social Justice contributes to the strong focus on justice at UNR. The National Judicial College, the Grant Sawyer Center for Justice Studies, the Justice Management and Judicial Studies M.A. Programs, the Judicial Studies Ph.D. Program as well as the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges already are visible and significant contributors to the justice focus at UNR and are now joined by this new certificate. The purpose of the Graduate Certificate is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality and social injustice and to help them develop theoretically informed and methodologically sound solutions at the local and global levels. Students will engage in research and scholarship on the significant justice issues in society today, specifically inequality and injustice in legal, criminal and civil areas, educational, economic, policy, health, and employment arenas, and the consequences of these injustices for individuals and society. The Certificate will prepare students for active engagement at the local and global levels in the identification and mitigation of structural inequalities and related policies and programs that create significant disparities in social justice and will be able to analyze and propose solutions for the factors. The Certificate is designed for students who want an integrative and focused experience in their graduate education or who are looking for an enhancement to their degree that will illustrate their academic expertise and increase their employability. Jobs in the areas related to certificates are often in the areas of research and administration in government or private organizations related to human rights, diversity or justice and may include organizations devoted to community development, international relief organizations, and economic development agencies. Positions that might be attractive to students with a Certificate in Justice Studies might be in the areas of Probation and Parole, Corrections, Policy Analysis, Immigrant Rights and Racial Justice, ACLU; Health and Social Service

2 departments; positions related to Restorative Justice, and organizations focused on family and gender issues. Academic Focus The Certificate in Social Justice draws upon the scholarly literature in the areas of inequality, justice, advocacy, social problems, and social ethics. More specifically it includes a wide range of research and scholarship on equity and justice topics related to economics, education, gender, family issues including divorce, custody, foster care and violence, civil and criminal law and crime, religious freedom concerns, mental and physical health, end of life-justice issues, as well as other areas. Faculty in the school have expertise in these areas and others. The program provides a core course introducing students to a wide range of social justice theoretical and applied material and school level and department level courses. Who Can Apply? Students who have received an undergraduate degree are be eligible for admission to the Certificate Program. Students may be enrolled in graduate programs at the University or may be professionals in the community who wish to enhance their knowledge and employment opportunities. Admissions Policies Admission: Students must either be currently enrolled in an M.A. or Ph.D. Program at the University of Nevada, Reno or have been accepted into the Certificate Program by the Program Admissions Committee. There is no requirement that students be admitted to any particular graduate degree program in order to be admitted to the Graduate Certificate in Social Justice. Interested students must provide the following information: *A completed application form available online at *An official transcript from every institution attended *A Statement of Purpose or Letter of Intent (approximately 2 pages) Materials are to be submitted to the Graduate School The Certificate Admissions Committee will evaluate the student s application materials and contact the student regarding their decision. Students can enroll in the Certificate Program at any time during their graduate education. Students who have already completed their undergraduate or graduate education can enroll in the Certificate program once granted admission by the Certificate Admissions Committee. Criteria for admission are based on criteria consistent with those used in the departments in the School as well as the requirements of the Graduate School. For more information on Certificate Programs and for application materials contact the UNR Graduate School

3 Upon completion of the Certificate in Social Justice, as with other UNR certificates, the achievement will be noted on the student s official transcript and a certificate will be mailed to student during the next graduation cycle. Fees There is a $60.00 application fee for all Graduate Certificates detailed on the Graduate School webpage. Academic Requirements: As required by the University policies on Certificates, students must maintain a B (3.0) GPA in the courses that constitute the certificate. A grade of C or lower will not be counted toward the Certificate. Students must receive a B or better in the required courses. If a student is a candidate for both a graduate degree and graduate certificate, the Department will determine whether and how many of the credits earned toward the graduate certificate (up to a maximum of 9 credits) will be counted toward the graduate degree in the student s graduate degree program. Course work will generally be completed within two years. Graduate Curriculum The curriculum consists of the existing School level courses in addition to courses directly relevant to the Certificate offered by other participating departments. All course work will be at the graduate level. The Certificate Program in Social Justice is a 12 credit program. It consists of a Social Justice Colloquium and three additional courses selected among those offered by the cooperating departments, (to include in some cases an internship course (SRJS 792) that allows for the application of theory and research). Participating departments determine the extent to which School level courses, including those in the Certificate Program, apply to their M.A. degrees. This curriculum is designed for maximum flexibility for students while providing both depth and breadth, allowing students to choose courses that best complement their M.A. or Ph.D. programs and that are most consistent with their post-degree career plans. The courses available to students consist of those already offered by the cooperating departments or developed and approved by the University Curriculum Committee and as such meet the expectations for academic rigor and excellence determined by the departments and programs offering the courses. Courses will be offered in a sequence that would allow students to complete their Certificate in a two year period, but since many of the students who will be admitted to the Certificate program work full time, they will not be limited to the two year framework. Because the Certificate is viewed as an

4 enhancement to the M.A. or Ph.D. programs at UNR, it is intended that a student could complete it as they are completing their other graduate work if they are enrolled in a graduate program. The Director of the School of Social Research and Justice Studies is the Certificate Coordinator and will help students develop a plan of study and select courses that best fit their needs.

Contact the Program Director for information. Learning Outcomes. The Certificate Program includes an assessment of student learning outcomes, directed at the student s academic preparation in the area of social justice. The Certificate is designed to provide student with the theoretical and methodological tools for the analysis of social injustice as well as socio-cultural-legal responses to such injustice. As such, students will: 1. Develop critical thinking skills to allow for the analysis of social justice issues. 2. Demonstrate knowledge of the complexity of solutions to social justice issues. 3. Demonstrate a sound understanding of social research methods allowing for a critical analysis of research in the area of social justice. 4. Develop and enhance written and verbal communication skills and demonstrate competency in conveying social justice issues to specific audiences in a variety of contexts. 5. Exhibit an awareness of ethical issues nationally and globally to encourage ethical behavior, particularly as it pertains to diverse populations, including gender, race, ethnicity and class. 6. Encourage state, local, and national entities to improve their response to social injustice and develop policies and programs for addressing such injustice. Assessment: The student s success in meeting the learning outcomes will be measured by their performance on examinations, projects, papers, and class discussion and presentations. Administration of Program: The Certificate Program will be housed in and administered through the School of Social Research and Justice Studies. The Director of the School will directly administer the Certificate Program. Admission and policy development will be overseen by the Director and the Social Justice Graduate Certificate Committee.
