Peace and Justice Studies

Do you have a passion for peace and justice but feel bewildered by the size and complexity of the social problems humans face?  Do you want to make a difference in the world?  The Peace and Justice Studies program may be the right choice for you. 

This interdisciplinary program prepares students for vocations in organizations that seek to establish peace and justice among individuals, communities, and nations.  It is ideal for students interested in work with non-governmental organizations such as the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps and Amnesty International or church-related organizations such as Lutheran World Relief, Catholic Worker Movement or American Friends Service Committee.  It also provides excellent preparation for students who plan careers in politics or law or for those with a passion to make matters of peace and justice a part of their lives and careers.
