Peace and Justice Studies is an interdisciplinary program that provides students opportunities to explore complex political, cultural, and artistic issues from the perspective of multiple disciplines. Eleven departments contribute courses. The major introduces students to theories of justice and violence, conflict resolution and the practice of nonviolence, as well as social change theory and community organizing. Service learning and community internships are integrated into the academic program.
