Justice and Peace Studies (Minor)
Creighton’s Justice and Peace Studies minor complements any major and empowers you to advance justice, peace, and environmental sustainability in any career. The Jesuit framework facilitates vocational discernment about how you feel called to change the world. The interdisciplinary coursework in social ethics strengthens your application medical school, law school, graduate school, and employment opportunities.
The Justice and Peace Studies minor 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.
The minor is part of Creighton’s Jesuit, Catholic commitment to helping students become women and men for and with others.
The interdisciplinary JPS minor strengthens medical, law, and graduate school applications, enhances career prospects in any field, and empowers each student to become their most authentic self.
Students in pre-health sciences recognize the need for compassionate care. Students in pre-law refine their understanding of justice.
Students considering graduate school, seeking employment, or unsure of their next step discern and pursue opportunities that utilize their talents, bring them joy, and serve others.
