About

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.

MINOR (18 credits)

To complete a minor in Peace and Justice, students must take six courses, including one of the foundational courses and five other courses in Peace and Justice, courses with a Peace and Justice attribute, or courses otherwise earning Peace and Justice credit.

Program Notes:

  • PJ ePortfolio (three pieces of work and a short reflection)
  • No more than three foundational courses may receive credit for the minor.
  • Up to 3 credits in courses fewer than 3 credits with the PJ attribute can be bundled to count as one elective.
