Peace & Conflict Studies

The Peace and Conflict Studies program prepares students and potential civic leaders with peacemaking and conflict management skills. Students preparing for careers involving management, mediation, conflict resolution, and negotiation often find Peace and Conflict Studies helpful both in their personal and professional aspirations. The minor in Peace and Conflict Studies and Special Certificate in Peace Building and Mediation are open to all students on campus, and provide an interdisciplinary perspective to the study of conflict, violence, war and mediation.
