Since our founding, the Global Peace and Social Justice (formerly Peace Studies) program has endeavoured to educate students and the wider community about past and ongoing injustices and how to recognize systemic violence. The program has also worked to equip students with the tools to challenge and transform a system that allows injustice to continue.

Global Peace and Social Justice seeks to create informed and active citizens attentive to issues of inclusion and diversity and equipped with the knowledge, skills and values essential to the building of a world where conflict is addressed and justice and equity are promoted. The program’s core courses introduce the concepts, skills and values of Global Peace and Social Justice and shape students’ capacities through applied courses focused on inquiry and research. These capacities are expanded through relevant courses from History, Philosophy, English and Cultural Studies, Communication Studies and Multimedia, Women’s Studies, Indigenous Studies, Anthropology, Economics, Labour Studies, Political Science, Religious Studies and Social Work.
