Volunteer and Work Experience

Introduces students to the study of social justice, attempting to link social theory, particularly the theories of Catholic social teaching, with social action and change. Students explore the diverse meanings and definitions of social justice while developing a critical understanding of key concepts and theories. Presented in relation to some of the most important social justice debates today, this course encourages students to apply their knowledge to a wide range of subject areas and social issues. As a key component of the course, students choose a relevant placement in acommunity service organization/NGO, complete a minimum of four hours of service per week, and engage in meaningful reflective practice with their peers.


UCV and AIFS organize a program of “intercambios” (conversation exchange) which enable you to practice your Spanish with a native speaker while a Spanish speaker practices their English with you!
