Minor 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.
This Minor is open to all undergraduate students. Students applying to the Minor Program must be in good academic standing.
The Minor curriculum includes 18 hours of course work relating to peace and social justice. The curriculum includes two required courses: SWRK 701: Social Justice: Human Liberation and Community Building, and SWRK 717: Foundations of Nonviolent Peacemaking. The four remaining courses will be selected from approved courses offered by other University academic units.
