SUNY Oswego's Peace and Conflict Studies minor offers an interdisciplinary perspective on issues of peace and conflict. It explores the causes and consequences of various forms of conflict, as well as the means for constructively addressing conflict, with a focus on nonviolent approaches.
The minor, open to all interested undergraduates at SUNY Oswego, is intended to help students recognize, evaluate, and effectively address a range of conceptual and practical issues associated with peace and conflict in today's world. Upon completion of the required coursework, students should be able to:
- employ analytical tools commonly used to study peace and conflict
- discuss causes of war and strategies for reducing or eliminating war
- understand the nature and dynamics of conflict at various levels of analysis
- identify conflict reduction strategies and conflict resolution mechanisms
