Peace Studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is interdisciplinary inquiry into the conditions that promote social justice and the non-violent resolution of conflict in relations among individuals, groups, and societies. It combines philosophical inquiry, historical knowledge, critical analysis of contemporary social conditions, experiential learning, and a deep commitment to educating and empowering students for citizenship in a world of greater peace, equity, and social justice. Our objective for the Minor in Peace Studies is to prepare students willing and able to speak and act in their lives out of deep commitment to creating conditions of social equity and critical regard for others.
