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.

Ocasio-Cortez Not Happy Trump Called Her AOC During Debate; Says It’s Sexist

Published

on

During the last presidential debate held on Thursday night, President Donald Trump referred to everyone’s least favorite Democratic Socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by her initials, “AOC,” which pretty much everyone calls her by. However, it appears this did not settle well with her. In fact, she considered it to be sexist and demands that the president call her “congresswoman.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot,” she tweeted. “AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101,” she continued. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319497076842110976 https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319499191551447041 The responses to AOC’s tweet were varied, with a lot of conservatives pointing out that there’s a big difference between nicknames and the use of a person’s initials. Many went on to note that President Trump often refers to men with more personal names, for example, referring to Joe Biden as simply, “Joe.” And, as you might expect, progressives eager to be white knights showed up to defend her from the big, bad orange man. “AOC is not a nickname, they’re your initials. JFK is also not a nickname. The FBI, again, is not a nickname. You can maybe say that Trump should’ve still used your official title, but Obama was also referenced sans title, and you don’t see him whining about it on Twitter…” said Lauren Chen in a tweet. “As a fellow…

Biden Says He Never Called For End To Fracking During Debate, But He Did Back In 2019

Published

on

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head in Thursday night’s final presidential debate on the topic of energy police and how their plans for reform might impact American workers. During the debate, held in Nashville, Tennessee, the president accused Biden of going all in on a radical leftist environmental agenda that would completely ban fracking and obliterate the oil industry. Via Fox News: During their debate in Nashville, Tenn., Trump accused Biden of embracing a radical environmental agenda that would ban fracking and destroy the oil industry. “He was against fracking,” Trump said. “He said it … until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania, then he said — but you know what Pennsylvania, he’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.” “Fracking on federal land, I said, no fracking and/or oil on federal land,” Biden shot back. The problem here is that fracking provides hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country. To seek to ban it and get rid of it would put all of these fine people out of work and do massive damage to the economy. Way back in 2019, Biden was asked during a Democratic primary debate if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?” “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” the former vice president replied. During the debate on Thursday, the president pressed hard on Biden to answer if he would shut down the oil industry. “I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said. Biden has also come out in favor of the Green New Deal. This piece of socialistic garbage…
