Description

The Peace and World Order Studies concentration seeks to provide students with a broad understanding of many global problems, suggested paths to solutions, and approaches to careers and further study in related areas. As a new and rapidly expanding area of concentration, Peace and World Order Studies cuts across many traditional academic lines. It is a discipline which is defined as much by the problems it addresses as by the method it applies. Students who complete this concentration are eligible for application for transfer to a large variety of Peace and World Order Studies programs at colleges and universities throughout the United States and other countries. Some of these programs are very broad in their approach. Others are more specific, specializing, for example, in conflict resolution or world order issues. Still other schools require a double major, so that their graduates are prepared to pursue a traditional career with the benefit of many peacemaking skills.
