Justice and Peace Studies (Minor)
Creighton’s minor in justice and peace studies features multidisciplinary courses that integrate community-service-learning, social analysis and reflection in the context of a faith that seeks justice and a more peaceful world. It seeks to “educate the whole person of solidarity for the real world,” in the words of Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, SJ, former superior general of the Jesuits.
Students who choose or plan to live in the Cortina Community, a service-centered living and learning community on campus, may find this academic component rounds out their Creighton experience especially well.
