The interdisciplinary Peace & Conflict Studies minor is designed to explore the nature and dynamics of conflicts, violence, and social injustice; and critically examine conditions that foster social justice and peacebuilding. Drawing from the arts, humanities, sciences, law, education and business, students will study violence and conflict (interper¬sonal, intergroup, and interstate), social justice, human rights, ecological integrity, gender inequity, urbanization, and peace from multiple perspectives. Through a structured interdisciplinary program this minor will prepare students for graduate study and a wide variety of careers in policy analysis, government, non-governmental organizations, journalism, teaching, law and business.
- All students must take Introduction to Violence, Conflict & Peace Studies. Those who have taken this course as an elective will have to add another elective to their coursework.
- Students who have signed up for a minor in IR, will not have a choice, i.e., they will have to take the 6 remaining papers.
