The Peace and Conflict Studies minor provides robust learning experiences in and beyond the classroom designed to increase students’ willingness to be civically engaged and socially responsible contributors to a more caring and humane society and world, fostering informed citizenship and enhancing SDSU’s ability to graduate students who are committed to lifelong learning and service. The minor presents historical and contemporary conflicts through an interdisciplinary lens because the causes of conflicts can usually be attributed to multiple and interwoven cultural, economic, political and historical factors. The program includes in various subjects as English, Speech Communication, Political Science, History, Global Studies, and Philosophy and Religion, but it is open to students of all majors.  The minor will be invaluable in ensuring that graduates have come to understand the overriding importance of what SDSU refers to as “the fellowship of many.”
