Let Peace Begin Here
Resolve conflicts with care as a Peace and Conflict Studies major at Guilford College. You’ll examine the relationship between personal and social change, structured modes of conflict resolution, and creative nonviolent activism and spiritual foundations for peaceable living.
Experiential learning is a natural component of this interdisciplinary program. Internships involve practical experience that focuses on social change, nonviolent intervention, conflict resolution or transformation, and/or building a culture of peace.
Guilford’s Conflict Resolution Center (CRRC) helps members of the Guilford College community resolve conflicts. Peace and Conflict Studies students may work in the CRRC, present programs on campus, and provide mediation for interpersonal conflict.
Graduates are currently attending or have attended prestigious programs at institutions including the University of Bradford, University of Peace in Costa Rica, University of Florida, UNC Chapel Hill School of Law, and Harvard. They have also built rewarding careers with VISTA, American Friends Service Committee, Peace Brigades International, and at domestic violence counseling centers and with mediation and conflict intervention.
