Register for the Spring 2015 PCS 5900
Have you ever asked "what will I do with my degree?" The vocational outcome of one's academic career is a vital and serious consideration. Peace and Conflict Studies Majors and Minors will have a wide breadth of talent to offer any employer, but how does one demonstrate that in the interview process? PCS 5900 "The Integrative Seminar" is a 1 credit class offered to all majors and minors to help students in the transition from academe to the professional world.

The Peace & Conflict Studies program...
is part of a dynamic and broad-ranging collaborative effort at the University of Utah. The major and minor are housed in the College of Humanities, while also being part of the Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy in the College of Social and Behavioral Science.
P&CS enables students to understand the dynamics of peace and conflict and to contribute to the creation of more just and peaceable conditions in the world. Courses focus on conflict theory, war and terrorism, just war theory, the history of peace efforts and non-violent social movements, community-based conflict management and resolution, and human rights.
Our initiative draws upon the support of other colleges as well, including Social Work, Fine Arts, Science, and Law. P&CS thus embodies a cooperative spirit while bringing together many different approaches to the study of conflict resolution, peace studies, and human rights advocacy.
