Peace Studies and Social Justice (Pathways Minor)

College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences

Peace education is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary field, informed by a vision of a global civil society based on nonviolence and ethical values that include mutual respect, tolerance, principles of social justice and democracy, socioeconomic wellbeing, and sustainable management of natural resources. The minor in Peace Studies and Social Justice will help students develop the skills needed to become the next generation of peace scholars and activists and empower them to be leaders in designing and developing strategies to reduce violence, promote non-violence, and build a more peaceful and just society.
