Peace and Justice Studies

The Peace and Justice Studies minor helps students to analyze the causes and manifestations of violence, war, oppression, and injustice and to identify theoretical and practical alternatives, locally and globally. The primary objective is to encourage students to think critically about violence, its causes, consequences, and alternatives.

Through interdisciplinary research, teaching and outreach, the minor encourages the cultivation of cultures of peace and justice in families, communities, workplaces, public institutions, and international relations.
