Minor in Peace and Social Justice
The minor in peace and social justice provides an opportunity to explore the interrelationship of peace and social justice and develop a set of skills necessary to promote peace and justice in interpersonal, institutional, societal and global settings.
The interdisciplinary effort focuses on the concrete question of how to realize peace and justice in today's world. In response to this question, participants examine the meaning of peace and justice and consider barriers, conditions, and strategies to achieving a peaceful and just world.
