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 become a changemaker by applying the resources of the academic community to the study of warfare and peace, nonviolence and social justice.

See "The field of Peace & Conflict Studies" color wheel for a visual representation of PACS' essentially interdisplinary nature and how it combines with other fields.
