This 3-credit course is designed to provide majors with a capstone experience of their
34-credit hour major,
and touch on the seven PCS themes:
Conflict and Collaboration in Multiple Contexts
Dialogue and Diversity
Communication Process Skills
The themes are reviewed and integrated along several lines of synthesis to allow students to make explicit their understandings of how their majors complement the diverse ways peace-work and conflict-resolving projects are being pursued locally and globally.
The objective of this course is to provide the student with an opportunity to write a PCS major paper that synthesizes the student's course work, integrates the student's work in wider local and global initiatives, directs the student's focus forward toward the next steps of career building, and specifies the most important lessons learned while pursuing their major.
Resource materials include all of the student's written work, self-evaluations of their experiential/performance/communication skills work, guest lecturers, Q&A open forums, texts and films.
