Description

The Center for Peace & Justice Education offers both a minor and concentration in Peace & Justice Education. Our interdisciplinary curriculum is firmly rooted in Villanova’s Augustinian tradition of education in the service of world peace and social justice, with particular emphasis on the poor and marginalized in society. As such, it offers courses which speak to a variety of issues, both timeless and pressing, to help students learn about corrosive social structures and articulate models more supportive of peace and justice. Participating in the program in general, and obtaining a minor or concentration in particular, thus connects students to Villanova’s celebrated tradition of unifying heart and mind, and complements all majors offered by the University.
