The field of peace studies examines peace and conflict from the perspective of the humanities and the liberal arts. Housed within the Department of Religion in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, the GW Peace Studies Program emphasizes the role of world religions in peace building and conflict resolution.
Sent exclusively to alumni, the Peace Studies Program/Religion Department newsletter features alumni and program updates, as well as event information. If you are one of our alumni, update your contact information with the GW Office of Alumni Relations to start receiving this and other exclusive alumni benefits.
"We look at peace through the lenses of religion, philosophy, history, political science and other disciplinary majors. Students become inspired by a lot of the historical figures and movements that they come across. They also come away with an enriched vocabulary to think about conflict, peace and democracy."
