The Peace and Social Justice (PSJ) program and curriculum evolved from student and faculty interest and concern, and has drawn wide attention. Students may elect a minor in PSJ. This is an interdisciplinary minor comprised of courses that address program issues and themes. They investigate the causes and manifestations of social injustice and violence in self, in society, and in the world of nations, and they explore alternatives to violent resolution of conflict. Students are encouraged to develop a closely reasoned philosophical position on peace and social injustice that can have lifelong application.
