Callings for the Common Good Studies
Social Justice Studies
This area of study develops students’ knowledge of spiritual and theological groundings for serving “the Common Good” in socio-historical contexts, as well as developing one’s own faith-motivated sense of “calling” to professions of service or ministry in a particular cultural context.
As part of the requirements for a minor in intercultural studies, students enroll in two of the three following courses:
- REL 281 Serving Society: Faith Perspectives
- REL 371 South Africa
- REL 280 Ministry: Callings and Practice
- ICS 280/380 Intercultural Experiential
Another related course discussed with the Niebuhr Center for Engagement and Reflection director and approved by the intercultural studies department chair.
