The course equips students to analyze ecological, economic, social, and political polices using the critical resources of Catholic social teaching in dialogue with other modes of social analysis. The course aims to educate students about current affairs from the perspective of Catholic traditions on social justice as well as to refine their analytical skills in applied moral theology. Offered at least once every two years.
