Faith, Peace and Justice - A Structured Exploration of Student's Interest or Concern
Four electives

An important feature of the FPJ minor is its flexibility in meeting the interest of the student by creating a "cluster" of elective courses reflecting their particular concern. Here are some examples of clustering electives around common themes for justice, peace, or professional ethical issues. The example "clusters" of electives are offered as illustrations of the many possible paths of inquiry open to students within the FPJ minor.
