Description:We need only look around us to see the negative impact of human conflict on an international and national scale, as well as within our own communities. Peace studies seeks to understand the reasons for confrontation and violence on all levels and, by understanding, to find ways to transform or prevent destructive conflicts. The discipline of peace studies covers a wide range of fields including philosophy, religion, politics, anthropology, the sciences, and many others.

Peace studies is an engaged discipline, with many faculty members actively involved in the promotion of human well-being through projects for peace education around the world. It attracts dynamic students who are able to apply what they are learning in the classroom by taking practical action in society. Graduates of peace studies are in demand as teachers, mediators, consultants, and development workers, by organizations working at home and abroad to resolve conflict.
