INST 2201 - Theology of Social Justice

Hours: 4
This course seeks to identify theological threads that are woven into the fabric of human responsibility toward the inhabitants of the earth and the earth itself. Students will be required to think critically about the complexities of social justice through topical emphases, such as the environment, religious violence, and institutional history (i.e., Otterbein University). Although focusing predominantly on the Christian tradition, the course will also consider other religions and spiritualities. While the course is grounded in religious and theological underpinnings, many disciplines including history, environmental science, geography, political science, and literature will be included. Students will be active participants in the learning process as service-learning projects are developed within each section of this course.
