In this globalization era, to be able to communicate in English is an advantage when a fresh graduate wants to apply for a job. Due to this point, UniversitasSanata Dharma requires the students who study in the non-English Departments to pass at least B2 level of CEFR. And to be able help the students reach this level, English is taught as a compulsory subject in the curriculum. Meanwhile, sometimes it is not easy to teach English in a non-English Department. There are some factors that influence the teaching and learning process. Some of the students are not motivated to learn English or do not have enough background knowledge. Others might not be confident with their English. These conditions lead the writer to conduct a classroom action research in an English class for the non-English Department students to identify the effectiveness of Ignatian Pedagogy to improve students' competence, conscience, and compassion. Ignatian Pedagogy is developed based on the experience of Ignatius Loyola. The teaching and learning process includes the following elements: context, experience, reflection, action, and evaluation. It is expected that by applying this pedagogy the students will be able to improve not only their competence or skills in using English, but also their conscience, and compassion so that they can grow as fully human persons and be the men and women for others.
