This minor provides students with an opportunity to engage in critical inquiry around peace and social justice as a historical and contemporary topic. Through the lens of the social sciences, arts and humanities, political communication, media, and technology, students are introduced to key concepts, empirical realities and trends, and practical strategies linked with advocacy for peace and social justice. Students are encouraged to engage with the Office of Academic Engagement and the Elma Lewis Center, as well as programs such as Alternative Spring Break.
A minimum of four courses, 16 credits, are required for the minor. Students select courses from the list below and must include at least one course at the 300 or 400 level.
