Peace Studies

The Peace Studies Program at Westminster College is an interdisciplinary, academic program designed to prepare students for the challenge of living in an increasingly diverse and global community. Students in peace studies will explore difficult societal and ethical concerns from multiple perspectives. In addition to understanding conflict and its resolution, coursework emphasizes global awareness, multiculturalism, public policy, ethics and human rights. Through service learning at the local, national or international level, students will translate their competencies into action and will enhance their ability to secure jobs in an increasingly global economy and multicultural society.
