Communal Studies minor or major

Hi,

We're thinking of starting a minor in Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana, and as part of the application process we are asked if there are similar minors or majors at other universities. Does anyone know of a minor or major in Communal Studies (or related field) at universities in North America, Europe or elsewhere?

Thanks for any help.

Regards,
