Intercultural Peace and Justice Studies is a relatively new in-
terdisciplinary feld, with most programs having been estab-
lished over the course of the past decade. Te general focus
the HNU program is to provide students with a theoretical
and practical knowledge of the relationship between peace and
justice, including the history of how various communities have

understood and acted upon these ideas. Moreover, the HNU
Intercultural Peace and Justice Studies program discusses mod-
els and techniques for overcoming injustice and fostering more
peaceful relations, and provides experiential opportunities for
students to use their classroom insights in a feld placement.

Tis program draws heavily on existing regularly ofered courses.
It is based primarily in the disciplines of Religious Studies and
Sociology, though it does allow for student choice by drawing
upon the social justice concerns found in a variety of courses
across the curriculum. It can thus be tailored to ft the specifc
desires of individual students in consultation with their advisor.
Te curriculum attempts to fnd a balance between theory and
praxis, refection and engaged action, by requiring students to
participate in a one semester travel experience or community
service project directly focused on issues of peace and social jus-
tice. Tis major provides preparation for those seeking careers in
law and criminal justice, social work, counseling, mediation and
confict resolution, nonproft management, development and
diplomacy as well as other related felds. It is strongly recom-
mended as a secondary major, done in conjunction with another
major, especially from the Humanities or Social Sciences.
