Peace and Justice Studies

The Peace and Justice Studies (PJS) Program at Pace University offers a 15-credit interdisciplinary minor focusing on peace-building, social justice, conflict resolution, and sustainability. The program reflects our commitment to theory and practice in this interdisciplinary field and is consistent with Pace University’s mission of civic engagement and global citizenship.

Why study Peace and Justice Studies?
Peace and Justice Studies (PJS) is an emerging field which draws on the insights from many different disciplines in order to address conflict and injustice and critically reflect on peace and social justice issues. Studying PJS allows students from any background or interest to examine issues which are both relevant to their daily lives as well as nationally and internationally. Having a minor in PJS prepares students to pursue careers in non-profits, humanitarian and international aid work, international law, negotiation, diplomacy, mediation, economic development, poverty reduction, restorative justice and more.
