The interdisciplinary peace studies and conflict resolution minor addresses the sources of oppression and violence and the challenges of promoting cooperative and peaceful relationships and social justice on international, national, domestic, and personal levels. It examines proposals that introduce more equitable and nonviolent methods to transform unjust, violent, or oppressive situations. It also teaches strategies such as mediation and conflict resolution to promote redress of grievances.
