The original Peace and Justice minor is open to all students across the University, however, it will not fulfill the College of Social Science Minor requirement for Social Science Majors.

Students must take one of the three required core courses:

ANP 436Globalization and Justice: Issues in Political and Legal Anthropology3
ANP 439Human Rights: Anthropological Perspectives3
PHL 353Core Themes in Peace and Justice Studies3

Students must complete an additional 12 credits in the selected courses from an extensive list of options.

Students must also complete a capstone paper intended to synthesize themes the student examined in the minor. A faculty member affiliated with the Minor in Peace and Justice Studies must approve the paper and inform the undergraduate advisor for Peace and Justice Studies of its satisfactory completion.

Students seeking further information about the university minor requirements or capstone projects and papers should contact Dr. Elizabeth Drexler, Peace and Justice Studies Director ( or Dr. Eric Montgomery, Peace and Justice Studies Advisor ( )
