Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies

The University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies is dedicated to building and sustaining peace and justice through innovative learning, interdisciplinary analysis, advanced practice and engaged public policy.

Through its Institute for Peace and Justice the faculty, staff and students of the School are working with populations to achieve peace and justice in places around the world. Working with its Trans-Border Institute, they are addressing urgent transnational issues affecting the people of Mexico and the United States, as well as peace and justice questions that transcend other key borders. At the Kroc School, students from around the world receive an interdisciplinary academic and practice-oriented education.

The Peace and Justice Studies minor creatively promotes conflict resolution, cross cultural understanding and social justice by introducing students to an integrated, multidisciplinary program. With a minor in Peace and Justice Studies, you'll learn the historical and contemporary perspectives on the nature of conflict, the conditions of sustainable development and strategies to achieve a more just society.
