Harvard Students Can Now Earn Yet Another Useless Degree: Social Justice Certificate

Published

on

Colleges and universities these days have become notorious for offering ridiculous and utterly useless degree programs to gullible left-wing students eager to throw away thousands of dollars on a piece of paper that will be of no value in the job market.

Programs like women studies, gender studies, and now, thanks to Harvard, a “social justice certificate.”

Good luck chatting to a job recruiter about your education experience and mentioning you have a degree in social justice.

This “certificate” is being given out by Harvard Extension School for students who take 16 credit hours in courses related to the topic of social justice.

The recently launched certificate allows students to take classes such as “Chocolate, Culture, and the Politics of Food,” “The Culture of Capitalism,” and “Storytelling and Global Justice” for credit, and Harvard stresses that courses taken prior to the 2016–17 academic year “do not apply toward this certificate.”

Other classes in the program include “The Minimum Wage Debate,” “The Politics of Religion in Liberal Democracies,” and “Readings in Black Radicalism”—a class dedicated to exploring readings on topics such as black Marxism, black feminism, and reparations.

“Through this liberal arts graduate certificate, you’ll learn about core themes of social justice, including philosophy, economics, the environment, religion, politics, ethics, sociology, and law,” the university explains on its website.

The curricula for the social justice program is built around economic and other policy issues rather than around the concepts of oppression, privilege, and so on.

While there aren’t any specific classes that have become requirements, the school is trying to encourage students to takes classes on “human rights, affirmative action, income distribution, education, government,” and many, many other topics.

There’s no GRE score requirement for admission into the program or courses, and the Harvard Extension School website simply encourages those interested in the classes to sign up and attend.

Some of the courses are available to be counted as electives for those who are going to get a master’s degree and have already earned their bachelor’s.

This program isn’t even a degree and will essentially get students nowhere when it comes time to hit the job market after graduation. It’s nothing more than an additional indoctrination tool to help progressives seal the deal on creating a future generation of individuals loyal to the state.

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
