Regardless of your major, you can easily add a minor in peace, justice and conflict studies. In its current form, this minor combines selected courses in multiple disciplines and a research project (which may be done in conjunction with a senior seminar in another major or as a separate project). Because the minor requires only 17-19 additional hours from multiple departments, you will have a good deal of choice in which courses you take. If you’re interested in a major with a peace, justice and conflict studies emphasis, you might want to explore the possibility of an Individualized Major.
