Faith-Justice Studies Minor
As a faith-justice studies minor at Saint Joseph’s University, students will be challenged to consider existing social beliefs and priorities in light of Gospel values and faith-based social justice traditions. This interdisciplinary, self-designed minor enables students to integrate their major area of study with inquiries into faith and social justice issues. Any student is welcome to enroll, regardless of declaring a minor.
Faith-justice studies courses are designed to help analyze institutions and social structures. Additionally, some of these courses contain a community-based learning component. Courses focus on social justice, civic engagement and personal transformation. These courses are drawn from across the university and include offerings such as Justice and Sustainability, Workforce Diversity, Inside-Out classes, Introduction to International Business, Economic Ethics, Latin-American Politics, Philadelphia: Black and White, Christian Medical Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy and Social Problems.
