Peace studies is an interdisciplinary major incorporating insights from political science, sociology, history, psychology, religion and other fields. Students learn how economics, ethnic tensions, religious differences and political rivalries can lead to war. They also discover how aspects of human nature, methods of conflict resolution, the U.N. and individual activism can be marshaled to overcome violence.
