Peace and Conflict Studies is an interdisciplinary path. You have freedom to explore the wide variety of courses in Juniata’s Liberal Arts catalog. We will challenge you to change the world by applying the resources of the academic community to the study of warfare and peace.

The PACS department offers three related Programs of Emphasis (POE) for students at Juniata College. View POE requirements at the links below.

Given PACS' essentially interdisciplinary nature, it combines well with many fields.
