Undergraduate Program in Peace Studies


For over three decades, the Undergraduate Program in Peace Studies at the Kroc Institute has provided students with the means to explore questions of peace, violence, and justice.

Students can enroll in courses that introduce them to peace studies, complete a supplementary major or minor to deepen their knowledge, conduct independent research on peacebuilding topics, participate in an annual student peace conference, and engage in experiences that help them apply their learning to real-world problems.

We invite students from any major or department to explore the many ways that the Undergraduate Program in Peace Studies can help them begin the work of building a better world.
