Interdisciplinary Studies (Peace & Reconciliation Studies)

  • online

University of Maine

The University of Maine Peace and Reconciliation Studies Program focuses on education for peace, justice, human rights, nonviolence, tolerance, global understanding, interdependence and mutuality, and environmental responsibility.

The program consists of an articulated series of courses in selected areas. After taking the introductory course, you may choose to study great activists for peace and reconciliation, peace and popular culture, including technology,permaculture, ecology and spirituality, and perhaps take a travel-study course. You will take the required Theories of Peace and Reconciliation, and  we will seek opportunities for students to practice what they are learning, through a variety of means, and to present their research at periodic Peace Conferences held at UMaine.
