Description

The Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) program is flexibly designed to satisfy the different needs of students, teachers and other professionals, and the general public. Objectives include providing a multi-disciplinary means of exploring the structural causes and manifestations of violence in self, in society, in nation-states, and in the global community and to consider alternatives to violent resolution of conflict. Those enrolled are encouraged to study, design, and participate in social and political structures that nurture peace and security, human rights and justice, racial and gender equality, environmental stability, economic equity, and responsible communication.
