Peace & Conflict Studies Minor
Peace & Conflict Studies explores the causes and nature of human conflict from the interpersonal to the global level. A partial list of topics under Peace & Conflict Studies includes: violence, war, ethnic conflict, conflict management, conflict resolution, peacemaking, law, human rights, values, justice, environment, racism, sexism and nonviolence. The goal of Peace & Conflict Studies is to promote a more just and peaceful world through the concept of “positive peace” promoting social, political and economic justice.
The Peace & Conflict Studies minor allows students to group courses that advance their interest in topics such as conflict, violence, genocide, ethnocide, gender-based violence, racism and anti-racism, and struggles for peace with justice. A Peace & Conflict Studies minor will enrich students’ understanding of their respective major(s) and prove useful to students in graduate studies and/or future careers.
The Peace & Conflict Studies minor consists of five courses. No more than two courses may be taken in the same department/program. Students may not count courses from their major department(s) toward the minor.
Independent studies and study-abroad courses will also be considered for the minor. Contact the chair of the minor Coordinating Committee for more information.
