Concerned about the world and wondering how to make a difference? Try peace studies!
The field of peace studies addresses some of the most urgent problems we face as global citizens by studying the causes of violent conflict and injustice and developing strategies for building peace and justice.
All incoming and current Notre Dame undergraduate students are invited to join Kroc Institute faculty members for a live, online discussion about the field of peace studies. You will learn what peace studies is, how peace studies can enhance your academic experience at Notre Dame, and what to expect from the Introduction to Peace Studies course. You can also ask questions about pursuing a supplementary major or minor in peace studies, as well as other opportunities available to students in the Undergraduate Program in Peace Studies.
Join the conversation at any point throughout the hour. You will have an opportunity to ask questions during the live session, but we also encourage you to submit questions for our faculty in advance via the event registration form.
Faculty and staff attending the conversation include:
- Professor Ernesto Verdeja, Kroc Institute director of undergraduate studies,
- Professor George Lopez and Professor Jason Springs, instructors for the Fall 2020 Intro to Peace Studies class, and
- Anna Van Overberghe, assistant director for academic administration and undergraduate studies.
