Optional Sub-Plan in Peace Studies

The Peace Studies courses listed below may be taken either as elective courses or as part of a plan of study leading to the B.A. degree with a major in Languages: Peace Studies, administered through the Department of Modern & Classical Languages & Literatures. The Peace Studies courses are taught by faculty members from the departments of Geography, Philosophy & Religion, History, Education, Economics, English, Psychology, Sociology, Languages, and the natural and physical sciences. Their goal is to encourage critical scholarly thinking and action by students and faculty in the growing areas of interest in issues of peace, war, social justice and human rights. They are excellent preparation for graduate study in a range of legal, governmental, social service, educational, theological and international fields.

The major requires a total of 36 credits, including all the following courses, except for the Independent Study. If one or more courses are not offered within the timeframe that students have for their graduation, they may take alternative courses with the permission of the Program Director, who serves as the academic advisor to Peace Studies students. Other courses may be selected by the student in consultation with the advisor to focus on an area of interest, e.g., courses from the Chinese Studies minor or other international or environmental topics.
