Peace and Social Justice Studies Minor

15 credits

Peace and social justice may be the most important subjects of serious study in the 21st century. Ignorance of the conditions that promote and hinder the development of peace and social justice has led to oppression, civil conflict, and war. This subject—including human rights, economics and society equality, global poverty, militarization, climate change, and conflict resolution—is everybody’s business, not merely that of the generals, government leaders or the global elite. This minor, which allows students to select courses from a wide interdisciplinary array of choices, will inform and empower students to make a difference for peace and social justice in our world today.
