Peace and Conflict Studies

Where activism and education merge.

Violence, injustice, and intractable conflict are among the most pressing problems we face today. At Grinnell, you’ll join a community committed to addressing these issues and taking action to solve them. You’ll work with fellow students and faculty members to better understand the issues underlying conflict and to creatively manage and transform conflict. As part of your studies, you’ll explore the historical roots of social justice and interact with scholars and peacebuilders working in the field to build peaceful practices and institutions in societies across the globe.
