Once upon a time attending university was simply the logical next step in earning advance knowledge about the ‘first things’, be they history, philosophy, theology or applied sciences.
But those days are gone.
Now going to college is simply a matter of discerning and training for a vocation in nothing at all. Meet Merrimack College (in Massachusetts of course) wherein you can earn a degree in Social Justice which includes required coursework on campus protests.
That’s right: you’ll be given college credit for protesting the college giving the credit.
The promo line says it all: A degree where your “passion for change, human rights” can become “a career”.
Because we need more unemployed 26-year-olds, saddled with debt, living in their parents’ basements.

If you ever wanted to be a professional, certified, degreed Social Justice Warrior, that dream is now possible, thanks to the educational geniuses at Merrimack College in Massachusetts.
That’s right, you can now get your degree in Social Justice. Seriously.
But don’t wait for me to explain, read it right from the school itself:
Why Study Social Justice?
Our social justice program offers majors the chance to turn their passion for change, human rights and a more just world into a career.
As a social justice major, you will receive the knowledge to prepare for advocacy and human-rights work within local community organizations and national and international non-governmental organizations like the United Nations. You will develop a strong theoretical understanding of ideas of social justice and participate in real-world learning in the field.
Why Social Justice at Merrimack?
- Flexible program means you may customize your major or choose to double-major.
- Required internship in a community-based organization or non-governmental organization provides hands-on learning.
- Annual Social Justice Week lets you get involved in on-campus initiatives to address inequality.
I love that last one. They are literally offering you a degree in protesting your own school and fellow students ON CAMPUS. You have to admit, that’s darn convenient.
