Bachelor's Degree - Arts & Humanities
Peace Studies via distance learning
This Bachelor's Degree examines the fundamental questions in peace studies from various perspectives. What do we mean by peace? How do we understand violence, conflict, security, development, sustainability, democracy, equality and justice? What human values are involved in peaceful and conflicting cultures? What are the practical means of building peaceful relationships? What are the key challenges and the peaceful alternatives facing humanity now and in the future? There is no single response to these questions mainly because of the wide range of human peace- and conflict experience, and the complexity of interactions from the local to the global.
