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.

Two students who attend the University of Connecticut have been arrested and charged with hate crimes after they were recorded walking outside student apartments saying racial slurs, according to a report released by the Washington Post. Jarred Karal and Ryan Mucaj, both 21-year-old white students, have been charged with the misdemeanor of ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race for violating a state statute concerning hate crimes. Here’s more from TheBlaze: The students also face potential discipline from the school, even possible expulsion, for violating the student code of conduct, UConn President Thomas C. Katsouleas said in a statement. “It is supportive of our core values to pursue accountability, through due process, for an egregious assault on our community that has caused considerable harm,” Katsouleas said. Karal and Mucaj, and a third unnamed student who was not charged, were walking by student housing and playing a game in which they yelled offensive words. According to the incident report, Karal and Mucaj began saying “n****” as they walked by student housing, and someone in the apartments began recording. The video captured of the incident went viral earlier this month, which sparked outrage among students and faculty. The video eventually made it into the hands of law enforcement.

Here’s a snippet from a letter the NAACP wrote to the university: “If the university does not adequately address and handle these occurrences of racism appropriately, it will create…
