“The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the Church’s social teaching. In this course, students are to learn how Christ’s concern for others, especially the poor and needy, is present today in the Church’s social teaching and mission.” – USCCB’s  Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework

The students will learn the laity’s special vocation which they seek the kingdom of God through engagement of temporal affairs pertaining to social, political, and economic realities and learn to permeate and reconcile those realities with the demands of Christian doctrine and life, such that societal life is illuminated and ordered according to the just principles of natural law and the Gospel, for the glory of the Creator and all human flourishing. A special emphasis on Bioethics will be included to help students better understand how Catholic Social Teaching Principles can assist us in navigating through a rapidly changing technological landscape in medicine today.
