War and Peace Studies Undergraduate Certificate


Sign at a protest reads "we need a change."

The purpose of the War and Peace Studies certificate is to allow students to explore the field of security studies from an interdisciplinary perspective. Similar to a minor, a certificate allows students to gain a broad understanding of the field and is open to students from any major.

In our program, we introduce our students to the fields of peace and security studies through one-on-one advising and interdisciplinary coursework.  Students also participate in the myriad events and workshops related to dynamics of conflict and cooperation, network with experts and activists, work closely with our faculty and present their research in national conferences.
