The Sustainable Peace and Reconciliation Studies Graduate Interdisciplinary Studies Program is available to all students who want to understand more about the philosophical and educational roots of peace and reconciliation; its expression and potential within various academic disciplines, research, and service; and how these can help address issues of sustainability, i.e., the interrelated health of the environment, society, and the economy. Knowing more about the ideas that underlie nonviolent conflict resolution, effective communication, cooperation, and mediation within cross-cultural contexts help students evaluate how sustainable peace and reconciliation can impact their beliefs, choices, and actions. Program details are available from the School of Global Environmental Sustainability

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.
