    Why Study Peace & Global Studies at Le Moyne?

    Increasingly, we live in a global society, one where the role of nations and their traditional alliances are becoming blurred as issues and concerns transcend national boundaries. At the same time, complex developments, such as immigration, global climate change, refugees, and terrorism, are changing the global landscape. As a student in the peace and global studies program, you will learn how the interaction between governments, cultures, and societies impacts our global community and your place in it. You will explore how concepts of justice and peace are linked in the world context to issues of economics, labor relations, the environment, gender, family, law, human rights, communications, and cultures. You will learn to be a nimble and critical thinker, which will help you understand the world and respond to it in an informed and engaged way.

    Program Highlights

    Peace and Global Studies majors will achieve advanced foreign language skills, spend at least a semester in a study-abroad program, and take Introduction to Global Studies and Ethics and Challenges of Globalization, a capstone interdisciplinary seminar entitled. In addition, working with Peace and Global Studies program faculty, you will develop an individualized course of study, taking several electives in a regional or thematic area of specialization. Regional specializations include the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and East Asia. Thematic concentrations include issues of global environmental change, economic development and under-development, family and gender, law and human rights, and conflict resolution.
