Peace Studies

Peace is not necessarily defined as just the absence of war, but as the presence of conditions for a sustainable peace. In the peace studies program at Emmanuel, you will develop an understanding of the causes of global conflict, including political, social, economic and religious factors. You will also learn about nonviolent methods of reducing and resolving conflict and explore how these methods have been used in cases around the world, as well as in the U.S. You will also have an opportunity to intern with Boston-area organizations involved in working for peace at home and abroad.
