Peace and Justice Studies Minor


Tracy Tiemeier 


The Peace and Justice Studies program seeks to embody the mission of the University, ever more important in light of the “just peace” movement that Pope Francis recently endorsed. As such, the Peace and Justice Studies minor seeks to ensure that students gain knowledge in three key areas of peace and justice as well as practically applying that knowledge through an engaged learning experience. Within the three main areas (Peace and Conflict; Social, Environmental, Economic, and Legal Justice; and Ethical Approaches), students may choose from a variety of courses that relate to their chosen fields of interest and emphasis, drawing from programs such as Political Science, History, Theological Studies, Philosophy, Economics, Sociology, and a number of other departments.
