Peace and Conflict Studies

The peace and conflict studies minor offers students the opportunity to pursue peacemaking and conflict transformation in coordination with an academic major. 

The PCS minor fits well with a semester-long cross-cultural experience in Northern Ireland or Washington, D.C.  Students take three required PCS classes in addition to one semester off-campus to complete the PCS minor. Both programs offer students the opportunity to study peace related topics and gain valuable hands-on experience through an internship.

Bluffton University is member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA).
