Description

The Peace Studies Certificate and Associate Degree offer an interdisciplinary, theoretical, and practical approach for students to enter into the academic and/or professional field of Peace Studies. Students gain skills to critically analyze current affairs related to peace and conflict. Students evaluate global consequences of events leading to violent conflict to offer alternative solutions to create more peaceful, just and equitable societies. The Peace Studies program allows students to gain professional experience with an organization working within a related field through participation in the required one-unit capstone course in field experience.
