OVERVIEW

The goal of the Washington D.C. Seminar is to provide students with an interdisciplinary perspective of policy issues associated with "sustainability” in both urban and rural contexts. Utilizing theories of development studies, classes will examine current practices in domestic and foreign contexts. Through lectures, class readings, facilitated discussion, and site visits, students will become familiar with different approaches and definitions of development. Students will reflect on the relationship between sustainable development and the three cornerstone principles of Catholic Social Teaching: human dignity, solidarity, and subsidiarity. During the week in Washington, D.C., seminar participants will meet with elected officials, advocacy groups, and non-governmental organizations that work in the area of U.S. and international development. The follow-up classes facilitate analysis and synthesis of insights gained during the week of experiential learning.
