This program is based primarily in two disciplines (Religious Studies and Sociology), though it does allow for student choice by drawing upon the social justice concerns found in a variety of courses across the curriculum. The major can thus be tailored to fit the specific desires of individual students in consultation with an advisor. To promote a balance between theory and praxis, reflection and engaged action, students participate in a one-semester travel experience or community service project directly focused on issues of peace and social justice.
