Justice and Peace Studies (Minor)

Creighton’s minor in justice and peace studies will empower you to help create a more peaceful world. The program features multidisciplinary courses that include service learning, social analysis and reflection in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition.

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.

Students who choose to live in the Cortina Community, a service-centered living and learning community on campus, may find this minor rounds out their Creighton experience especially well.
