The Jesuit Way of Doing: Discipline-Oriented English course

Since their establishment in 1534, the Jesuits have been influencing countries and people, from the poorest to the richest among them, for bad or worse. They reformed a large religious institution from within, stood up against big powers, fought for the rights of marginalized people and ethnicities, and led daring ventures. None the least, they established 214 universities worldwide and an influential international network called Jesuit Refugee Service. How did they succeed in doing so? The Jesuits would answer, “because of our way of proceeding.” In this course, we shall analyze the strength of the Jesuit way of doing things through the lenses of cognitive psychology, educational research, leadership studies, and literature. By the end of the course, students will improve their linguistic competences as they engage with learning activities on the Jesuit tradition. They will learn about the history of Jesuits and their major achievements in the past and present. They will analyze the forces and ways that made these achievements successful. They will learn about Ignatian spiritual exercises, which can shape decision making. They will read major documents that shaped the Jesuit order. They will become familiar with English-language terminology pertaining to social work, spirituality, theology, philosophy, politics and Jesuit tradition. As for the linguistic competences, students will practice writing analytical reports, reading and listening to professional resources on non-profit and religious entities, and presenting socio-religious topics supported by evidence and theories.
