ISP 100 Justice: Who's In, Who's Out

3 hours 

Drawing on texts from the humanities and the social sciences, this course will explore how justice - as a word, an ever-changing concept, and a shifting reality - affects and controls individual lives. It will consider such crucial issues as the scope of justice, the definition(s) of what is just, and the problem of how individuals respond to injustice, and it will do so from an interdisciplinary perspective.




This course satisfies the John Jay College Option: Justice and the Individual (100-level) area of the Gen Ed Program.

This course is a First Year Seminar and is restricted to Freshmen only.
