Increased contemporary attention to the theme of “ecology” calls for a serious investigation into the ways in which ecological concerns intersect with Catholic culture and its values. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, this course explores the foundations of a Catholic “integral ecology” and investigates the implications of that ecology for a Christian, ecologically-attuned life and witness.

Enables students to think systematically about the Christian moral life within the framework of the Catholic tradition, while more broadly engaging current debates in Christian ethics and moral theory. Following the Second Vatican Council's call for a renewal of moral theology, the course draws on the sources of Scripture and tradition, as well as theology, philosophy, and ecumenical converstaion. Students will gain a broad theological understanding of human freedom and human nature, conscience, moral norms and systems, sin, the virtues and the Catholic understanding of moral goodness
