Social Concerns Seminars

Social concerns seminars are academic courses that create opportunities for students to engage in social analysis, work with community partners around the country, and reflect on their experience and its impact on individuals and communities. Most immersion components take place during fall, winter, and spring breaks and require students to travel to different locations to address social concerns topics in context.

Students examine social issues from various perspectives, read relevant texts, study the role of Catholic social tradition, share in the life of the communities they work with, and participate in creating active learning communities during the entire course of the seminar.
