Program Handbook

Graduate students pursuing a terminal master’s or doctoral degree at the University of Notre Dame have the opportunity to complete a graduate minor in Peace Studies. The minor empowers students to relate their existing study and research to a growing body of knowledge and practice within the multidisciplinary field of peace studies, with the goal of addressing violence and alleviating human suffering.

The graduate minor will give students access to classes taught by core faculty members at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, who are among the premier scholars in the field.

For doctoral students, combining concentrated coursework in peace studies with their primary discipline can enhance their scholarship and expand their professional options.
