Description

Minoring in Peace Studies gives you the opportunity to explore causes of war, conditions of peace, and how to avoid the former and promote the latter. The program adopts an interdisciplinary approach to examine some of the basic questions of our time: what is peace, what is conflict, and how can one be promoted and the other prevented? Peace Studies includes analyses of issues involving class, race, gender, sexual preference, the environment and international relations of all kinds. The minor is the result of a generous donation made by Fred and Ruth Graf, alumni of Purdue University.
