Department of Peace and Conflict Studies

School of Health and Human Sciences


In Fall 2013, the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies began accepting students into its Peace and Conflict Studies BA Program.

The Peace and Conflict Studies Program takes a dynamic and interdisciplinary approach to the study of peace and the practice of conflict management, resolution, and transformation.  Undergraduates in this field of study will gain an understanding of peace science and peace scholarship while actively engaged in their communities proactively transforming conflict.

Most courses are open to major and non-majors. There will be a few openings for online attendance; please note, all courses are SYNCHRONOUS as to allow face-to-face interaction between residential and distance learners.
