About

Students in Transformative Social Change - Peace and Justice Studies program at Saybrook University may opt to declare a Specialization in Peace and Justice Studies.

Overview

Violent conflict and injustice are ubiquitous. They are also costly in lives and in resources. The Transformative Social Change - Peace and Justice Studies prepares students with a deep understanding of the complex causes of societal conflicts and contributors to social injustice, in order to break the cycle of violence and create more just and sustainable social systems. 

Its special contribution is to relate specific issues and actions regarding peace and justice to a larger transformative social change framework, which engages people to delve more deeply into the causes of social problems at all levels and the processes that can contribute to a more peaceful and just society.
