Description

A Peace and Conflict Studies degree opens the way toward various important and rewarding careers in areas such as diplomacy and government service, non-governmental organizations, social service, law, education, personnel policy, counseling, and the arts. Skills you will learn as a co-major include the ability to understand and resolve disputes, civic awareness of key controversial issues, critical thinking about social problems of our time, organizational ability on themes ranging from violence reduction and international trends to causes and consequences of war. One especially useful aspect of the program is the opportunity to do internships for credit, in organizations and agencies either on campus, in the community or abroad. This affords the student the opportunity for hands-on learning and to make important network connections.
