The EKU School of Justice Studies provides a stimulating learning environment that promotes respect, tolerance, sensitivity, an open exchange of ideas, and preparing students for careers as leaders in the field. Unlike training, the program focuses on engaging students critically and creatively in rigorous inquiry, which fosters a deep, committed and practical understanding of justice problems. Students not only learn about factors that encourage a variety of social problems, but they examine strategies for effective social change. The program focuses on experiential learning and offers students opportunities to engage in field work designed to connect classroom learning with real world social activism
