Integrating Spirituality, Peace, and Justice

Offered in partnership with Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Bellarmine’s Master of Arts in Spirituality, Peace, and Justice provides an ecumenical grounding in the study of Christian spirituality and its relationship to social transformation, as well as exposure to, and readiness for, interfaith cooperation.

Spirituality is increasingly recognized as a crucial source of personal integrity and wholeness, laying the groundwork for just and peaceable action in a world marked by complex interrelatedness. Through the academic study of classic and contemporary examples of spirituality as an integrating factor in human life, M.A. students are prepared for lives of personal and social transformation in a wide range of contexts.
