The University of Iowa could become the first school in the state to add a bachelor’s program in social justice to its list of degrees, provided its Board of Regents approves the motion. Currently, the school already offers a first-year seminar on social justice as well as a “Justice for All” living learning community where students can live and “learn about systemic problems in our society.” Students have “expressed a desire to integrate academic work more deeply with anticipated career paths.” University officials told The Iowa City Press-Citizen that both programs have been so well-received, with full-enrollment in the “Justice for All” learning community, that demand for an actual degree-program on the topic makes sense. According to the proposal, the program will be interdisciplinary in nature, since more and more students have “expressed a desire to integrate academic work more deeply with anticipated career paths,” such as social activism work with a non-profit. So far, 25 students are expected to enroll in the program during its first year, with a target goal of 110 students by its seventh year. As if college degrees weren't already pointless enough, now the University of IOWA is now starting quite literally the most pointless degree in America on a Social Justice program. What do you need to do to pass the class show up and cry everyday, are the tools needed for the class toilet tissue and dog cages? What's the point of a Social Justice degree in the first place, to teach college students how to be more whiny than preschool kids? When you get your degree will it be covered in glitter and human tears? The university of IOWA should be stripped of it's accreditation, for teaching a class where only whining and no skills are required. What happened to your mid-western values IOWA...What a shame, and to think a predator is this schools mascot.
