Peace & Justice

Theological education in a Quaker seminary should awaken students’ awareness of and concern for issues of peace and social justice in daily life, both in our local communities and the global village of which we are a part. The Quaker peace witness, conflict resolution, and interfaith dialogue are foundational components of this portion of the curriculum area. Courses in this area include: Introduction to Peace and Justice Studies; the Bible and Violence and Nonviolence; Liberation Theologies; Process Theology, Conflict Resolution; History of Friends’ Peace Witness; and a Spirituality of Peacemaking. Students are encouraged to supplement their course work with involvement in their peace and justice concerns outside class.
