Franciscan Values and Social Justice


This course serves as an interdisciplinary connection between sociology and Franciscan values. Students will be introduced to real-life examples of how practicing sociologists work toward social change and social justice. In the process, it will examine the Franciscan values that ask us to create a peaceful and socially just world, develop compassion for the poor, display hospitality and service, and advocate for human rights and environmental causes. Social patterns in society, sociological theories, methods of research and their application in the real world will also be discussed. Students may not earn credit for more than on VUSM course at the 100 level. FVT, SS
