Peace and Justice, B.A. (GIS)
Chair: Kathryn Getek Soltis, S.T.L., Ph.D.
Office Location: 106 Corr Hall
The interdisciplinary curriculum of the Center for Peace and Justice Education is rooted in Villanova’s Augustinian tradition of education in the service of peace and social justice, with particular emphasis on the poor and marginalized in society. Students are prepared to understand the essential elements of a moral and just society, reflect on models for socially responsible resolution of injustice and conflict, and learn the necessary skills to be advocates for a just and peaceful world.
MAJOR (30 credits)
The major in Peace and Justice Studies is offered in collaboration with the Department of Global Interdisciplinary Studies. To complete the major, students take five required courses and five elective courses in Peace and Justice, courses with a Peace and Justice attribute, or courses otherwise earning Peace and Justice credit.
- Electives should be determined in consultation with the program director and tailored to the student’s field(s) of interest.
- Up to 3 credits in courses fewer than 3 credits with the PJ attribute can be bundled to count as one elective.
