Graduate Program in Social Justice
The Master of Arts degree in Social Justice is designed to prepare students interested in gaining practical tools, specialized skills, and policy knowledge to advocate effective strategies to maximize the potential for social justice and human rights. The Social Justice graduate program seeks to build competencies and skills to transform social inequalities among social structures (economic, political, gender, race, etc.) toward a more just society. Graduates of the program are prepared for further graduate study or for careers in research, planning, policy analysis, politics and government affairs, public interest advocacy, public interest law, international or multicultural affairs, diversity, and social justice consultation, corporate giving, media, public affairs, human services, social work corrections, media, international humanitarian careers, and non-governmental organizations (NAACP, Innocence Projects, & the Southern Poverty Law Center, etc.)
Dr. Tdka Kilimanjaro serves as the Director of the Social Justice Graduate Program and is also a Professor of Sociology at Fisk University.

After finishing my Undergraduate Degree I know I wanted to attend one of the countries' best HBCU's to further my education. The small class sizes coupled with a dedicated faculty and staff this was the best choice I could have made.
