92 MINOR IN PEACE AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION STUDIES Program Directors: Janie Leatherman Department of Politics and Government Campus Box 4600 425 Schroeder Hall (309) 438-8923 Deborah Gentry College of Applied Science and Technology Campus Box 5000 143C Turner Hall (309) 438-8748 The Minor in Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies is an interdisciplinary program that includes courses from fourteen departments. The Minor provides a comprehensive and in- depth approach to peace and conflict resolution theories and methods. Students are required to take an introductory course, as well as one course from each of five areas of inquiry (social justice, conflict resolution, violence, environment, and glob- alization), while also specializing in one of these areas with two additional courses. The minor's cap- stone experience is a professional practice. The Minor allows students to examine both the causes and prevention of war, as well as the nature of violence, including social oppression, discrimi- nation and marginalization. They also learn peace strategies to overcome persecution and transform society to attain a more just and equitable interna- tional community. The inquiry encompasses micro to macro perspectives. At the micro end of the spectrum, students investigate non-violent ethics and conflict management; inner, aesthetic, and spir- itual peace; interpersonal communication and rela- tions; intergroup relations; and diversity and gender issues. At the macro level, students explore the dynamics of international conflict, as well as approaches to peace and world order; ethnic and socioeconomic justice; multiculturism; renewable economics; and biodiversity. 27-28 hours required.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
