Justice & Peace Program

Justice and Peace and the way religion has both encouraged and resisted positive social change can be found throughout the Iliff curriculum. Justice and Peace courses approach movements for social change from the context of scripture and tradition, and also through disciplines that foster social analysis: political theory, economics, sociology, and the study of social change. Students evaluate strategies to counter the ways in which the tools of injustice are used to create interlocking, self-justifying, and damaging systems.

Building upon strong spiritual foundations, the program supports Iliff’s commitment to education that responds to the challenges of race and racism, class and economic exploitation, sexism/heterosexism, and militarism. The world’s diversity and the challenges of sharing power between differing cultures are explored from faith perspectives.

A Justice and Peace concentration is offered in the Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Specialized Ministry degree programs.
