Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Peace Studies Program at WSU was designed to be a multi-disciplinary program drawing from philosophy, English, history, as well as social and physical sciences to study human conflict and conflict resolution. The program was designed to eventually offer both a major and a minor, though the program was soon discontinued.
