Peace and Justice Studies Minor


The peace, justice and conflict studies (PJCS) program draws many compassionate and thoughtful students. As a minor in peace and justice studies, you’ll get to join in lively discussions about humanitarian issues and participate in active peacemaking.

With just one required course, Mediation, and five electives, the minor in peace and justice studies lets you put together the courses that best match your passions. This flexibility makes the peace and justice studies minor work well for students from a wide variety of academic majors–you will acquire a unique set of skills that sets you apart from other graduates. Some peace and justice minors will go on to specifically peace-focused careers, but most will use the skills and perspectives gained in the minor to enhance their work in any career they might choose. Whether you go on to graduate school or enter the workforce right out of college, your peacemaking skills will make you a valued member of your community.
