Peace & Justice

Some see our world as a broken place. Violent conflict kills hundreds of thousands of people each year. Millions of refugees suffer displacement and want. Poverty and discrimination keep countless people from achieving their potential.

As someone passionate about peace and justice, you believe things can be different. You long to do your part in building a sustainable peace, transforming conflict into reconciliation and bringing hope to those suffering injustice.

At St. Norbert College, completion of six courses from the interdisciplinary peace and justice curriculum earns you a minor in the field and prepares you to change the world for the better.
