Are you looking to learn how to make the world more just, peaceable and humane? Understand the origins, causes and justification of violence, and explore the most successful non-violent strategies for reducing violence and managing conflict? Develop the skills needed to help create cooperative relationships among persons, groups and nations? Siena’s Peace Studies minor offers courses, internships and field research opportunities that will help you meet these goals.
A Peace Studies minor is ideal for Saints looking for a career in criminology, law, politics and advocacy, social work, education, international development, mediation and conflict transformation, violence prevention, immigration services, and many other fields. The knowledge gained through our minor is beneficial for students in any of our three Schools.
