Diplomacy, Non-Governmental Organizations & Peacebuilding Concentration

“The act of Compassionate Listening is an embodiment of the core definition of compassion, which means ‘to suffer with.’ To feel that depth of connection with another we must find the place within us that also suffers.”
- A. S. Cohen, Practicing the Art of Compassionate Listening, 2011

The Diplomacy, Non-Governmental Organizations and Peacebuilding concentration provides a foundation for students interested in pursuing careers that emphasize mediation and bridge building in non-profit transnational organizations. Students will have the opportunity to place the study and practice of diplomacy into conversation with the disciplines of African Black diaspora studies, community service studies, international studies, peace studies, political science and religious studies.

Students in the Diplomacy, Non-Governmental Organizations and Peacebuilding concentration are advised to take PAX 202: Active Non-Violence: Practical and Creative Approaches, before choosing five additional courses from the following list.
