The Peace Studies Minor serves students who wish to pursue a life dedicated to a more just and peaceful world. This interdisciplinary program prepares students for careers in a wide range of professions, including those in human relations, veteran affairs, patient care, academic services, child services, government and law, nonprofit organizations with community- and regionally-focused objectives, and non-governmental organizations dedicated to transforming international conflict. The minor also helps students prepare for advanced studies in political science, international relations, conflict management, public administration, and a host of other subjects.
The Peace Studies Minor program consists of five courses (two required and three elective) of undergraduate study across the disciplines. The five courses may be taken in any order, and the capstone is optional. A minimum of six hours in the minor must be taken in residence at Kennesaw State University.
