Highlight: Explore why conflict and violence occurs, and how it can be transformed by “collaborative decision-making” to accomplish constructive ends. Think of Peace and Conflict Studies as an Arts program with a large experiential component that most definitely has current and relevant real world applications giving you skill sets that never become outdated! Lots of program options as well: can be taken as a 4-year Honours, 4-year or 3-year general major, or even as a minor. It can also be combined with another discipline in for a joint major. Internships abound. Plenty of ways to integrate with the Waterloo co-op program as well 🙂
In a world where employable opportunities are seemingly dominated by STEM fields, Peace and Conflict studies is a solid alternative: an Arts degree program that can change the world!
