A major in Peace and Conflict Studies consists of 36 to 45 credits with at least 18 credits at the 3000 level or above (includes required and elective courses).
Students must take at least 1 course in each of the three areas (Foundations of Peace & Conflict, Approaches to Peace & Conflict, and Regions of Peace & Conflict).
A statistics course is highly recommended. Students must take four semesters of a foreign language or demonstrate proficiency.
Note: At least 75 credits must be earned outside of the major including general education requirements, language requirement, and free electives. Elective courses that are used to fulfill Peace and Conflict Studies major requirements cannot also be applied to satisfy a student’s general education requirements.
Students transferring to the college and wishing to major in Peace and Conflict Studies must make individual arrangements with the program director regarding satisfaction of major course requirements.
Current UMass Lowell students should use their Advisement Report in SiS. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor.
