The Global Peace and Security (GPS) Program was established at UCSB in 1982 as part of a system-wide effort to develop peace and security studies. Its programs have been supported in part by the UC systemwide Institute of Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC). Mark Juergensmeyer serves as Chair, and in addition the program supports a half-time Lecturer, Marguerite Bouraad-Nash, who teaches the core courses for the program and also serves as Vice-Chair. The Minor in Global Peace and Security Studies gives students the opportunity to complement their major with an interdisciplinary minor relating to contemporary international affairs and policy issues.
