JHP 2350 - Introduction to Peace Studies (3)

When Offered: On Demand
In this course, students will explore relevant theories about peace studies, as well as a history of the development of the area of peace studies. The course will ask students to discuss the problems that arise when working in the area of peace and evaluate the ways in which states and individuals consider waging peace. Finally, the course will encourage students to consider their contributions toward achieving a world in which people can resolve conflicts more effectively. Given the ultimate goal of understanding ideas such as negative peace and positive peace and nonviolent methods for conflict resolution, this course will be very interdisciplinary, including but not limited to academic fields in political science, sociology, psychology, economics, gender studies, anthropology, and literary studies. Working across fields and supporting an open discourse allows for multiple interpretations and perspectives.
