Peace & Justice Studies at Warren Wilson
The Peace & Justice Studies program examines political and cultural identity in relation to social institutions and global conflict. Students engage in critical thinking on race and class, domestic and international policy, nonviolence and warfare, religious ethics, and peacekeeping. The Peace and Justice Studies Program works closely with Gender and Women Studies, Africana Studies, Global Studies, and Religious Studies to offer a range of courses in social theory, public policy, political movements, human rights, and international institutions. Students are also encouraged to take courses in service learning, build relationships in Buncombe County communities, and study abroad.
The program oversees the Peace and Justice Studies minor and the Peace and Justice concentration in the Department of Global Studies.
