LAS 441 Justice And Peace

3 credit hours

This Liberal Arts Core seminar focuses on the interdependence of justice and peace. Drawing on a wide variety of sources students ask what “justice” means with respect to the courts of law, the economy, globalization, human rights, social harmony, and so on. Injustices of various kinds often lead to violence and even war, so this course also provides an arena for students to consider the tenets of Just war theory, the broad lines of a common good ethic, and non-violent means of peace-building through the promotion of justice. Students will be introduced to some of the work of the Adrian Dominican office on Justice and Peace. This capstone course helps students master some content and skills identified by our liberal arts learning outcomes, especially ethical integration, and to integrate knowledge acquired through the construction of a cumulative project, or composition of a philosophy of life essay.

Course is Offered: FA and WI Every Year
