Make the world a better place

River stones stacked to represent our Peace & Conflict Studies minor

Untangle some of the knottiest issues we face: war, peace, and international relations. Learn the analytical and communication skills behind conflict resolution. You’ll dive into issues such as globalization, nationalism, and nation-building, and come out ready to apply mediation strategies in fields such as Adventure Education, social work, public relations, or community work. You’ll even get certified in mediation and/or conflict analysis through the United States Institute of Peace.
