The Peace Studies Liberal Arts degree at Golden West College offers students an opportunity to understand the value of Peace. This program teaches tomorrow’s leaders how to utilize peacemaking and conflict management skills in their daily lives, whether across the ocean, across the living room, or within oneself. This requires an awareness that allows people to respond proactively and creatively, rather than thoughtlessly or defensively, to conflict and violence at various levels.
The program has been developed to provide an interdisciplinary perspective to the study of conflict, violence, war, and peace. Such an approach is essential in view of the highly complex, interconnected, and interdependent world in which we live. This interdisciplinary program is open to all students.
A major in Peace Studies is a preparation for those seeking to pursue careers in international affairs, whether through the Foreign Service, Peace Corps, the United Nations, or international Non-Governmental Organizations. Areas of involvement might include human rights, social and economic development, disarmament, conflict analysis, and general peacemaking. The student seeking a domestic career may find work as a mediator or conflict resolution specialist, a human relations specialist, or an educator.
