The Georgetown University Program on Justice and Peace is a transdisciplinary, cross-cultural community of students, faculty, staff, and community partners who share a commitment to the academic study and lived pursuits of peace and social justice. The Program offers undergraduate students in Justice and Peace Studies (JUPS) a major in the Georgetown College of Arts and Sciences, as well as a minor in the College, the School of Nursing and Health Studies, and the McDonough School of Business, and a certificate in the School of Foreign Service. The Program fosters creative and collaborative explorations of complex questions of practical morality and domestic and global politics. Innovative approaches to teaching and learning, including social action, community engagement, experiential pedagogy, and student-produced media are hallmarks of the Program. A senior thesis project is the capstone of the JUPS major, affording students the opportunity to pursue scholarly questions in depth among a community of fellow inquirers working for justice and peace.
