The Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies Program provides a major, double major, and minor curriculum that helps students engage in critical examination of the origins and root causes of violence, social injustice, and conflict. The program also provides the opportunity for students to build skill sets that allow them to actively participate in peace-building, conflict resolution, and promoting a just society and the common good. The program fosters dialogues about the efficacy of
nonviolent as compared to violent approaches to social change and
peace-building strategies and emphasizes hands-on, experiential education
and skills training throughout the curriculum.
