Peace Studies Major:

Conflict situations, the result of increased tension between and in nations, have become increasingly complex all over the world. The reasons for these conflicts vary from economic to social to religious to ethnic.
The demand for expertise in international monitoring and regulation on the one hand, and increased intervention from international organizations and charities capable of putting pressure on national and international governments on the other hand, are also growing.
The Peace Studies program is a response to this ever-increasing need for skills in conflict management and resolution. Through its interdisciplinary, professionally-oriented, research-informed curriculum, the program is contributing to the manifold efforts to prevent violence and work towards a lasting peace.
