Peace and Justice Studies - NYC

The Peace and Justice Studies Program on Pace University’s New York City campus examines direct, structural and environmental violence; theories and practice of nonviolence and conflict transformation; restorative justice; and interdisciplinary perspectives on peace-building and peace-making. 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.

Pace University’s New York City campus is centrally located, minutes from the financial district, United Nations, World Trade Center, the Courts, theatre district and is immersed in a diverse, urban community. Drawing on this setting, we offer faculty with specialties in peace and conflict studies, restorative justice, nonviolence, gender, humanitarian aid, religion and peacebuilding, postcolonial theory, developmental studies, and reconciliation and transitional justice. Beyond the classroom, students engage in a wide range of service learning placements and internships.
