PCS 4900 - 001 Introduction to Peace & Confli


What is Peace & Conflict Studies? How can someone develop a career doing peace work or conflict resolution work? Peace and Conflict Studies (PCS) is an increasingly popular program, in universities in the United States and globally. In this largely experientially-taught class, we will explore the multiple causes of peace and violence, as well as effective conflict resolution methods, such as setting up structured communications, summarizing, and looking for commonalities. We will consider if there is such a thing as ?inner peace?, and how it might be created. Students will also learn how to participate in and facilitate dialogue, as a peace-making tool. This new class, which is available for credit or non-credit, is open to all students, is offered in an alternative intensive summer format, and is taught by David Derezotes, Director of the PCS program at the University of Utah.
