Wheeling Jesuit University
Program Requirements

1) The minor in peace studies consists of 18 credit hours distributed in the following manor:

Required Courses (total six credit hours):

PHI 240 Philosophy of Peace and Justice or PHI 250 Philosophy of Jesuit Education

All must take:

PST 486 Senior Seminar in Peace Studies

Electives (total twelve credit hours):

Students have two ways to meet this requirement. Which ever option is selected, please be sure to consult the university catalogue for course descriptions and possible prerequisites.

Option A allows students to pick a particular path of inquiry through the “clustering” of electives. Please note that specific courses within a “cluster” may not be offered on a regular basis and therefore substitutions may be required. Before selecting a “cluster” it is recommended that you meet with one of the program coordinators to discuss possibilities.

Option B allows students to select individual courses to create their own “clusters” from an approved interdisciplinary list. In keeping with the programs commitment to exploring the complexities of peace and justice from more than one academic discipline, students selecting option B must minimally select two courses from outside their chosen major. The selected courses must also be distinct from those that fulfill the requirements of the student’s primary major.

2) The completion of a co-curricular project.

This could be fulfilled through an internship, the completion of a course with a significant service learning component or an immersion trip coordinated by a WJU department. All co-curricular projects must receive prior approval from one of the co-directors of the Peace and Justice Studies program.
