Curricula and Programs

The Center for Peace and Justice coordinates a number of courses taught by faculty in various departments, which can be combined in a minor or used to enrich courses taken as preparation for service in such careers as social work, pastoral ministry, peace education, teaching in public or private schools, diplomacy, and business.

The center also coordinates a study program in conflict management to prepare students for practical peacemaking in their work, church, community and family.  Students will study the theory of communication and conflict resolution, be introduced to relevant skills, and equip themselves to apply this learning in a variety of actions.  Certificates are awarded upon completion of the program.

In addition to regular course work, the center offers a variety of learning experiences for students and community participants, including lectures, films, international work/study trips, and field experience placements.
