Program Overview

Peace and Conflict Studies

Peace and Conflict Studies is an interdisciplinary concentration open to students in any major. Here, you will study not only the factors that lead to human conflict and aggression but also examine levels of conflict, both individual and group, and explore the potential links between issues of social and environmental justice and violent conflict.
