What is the PACS Certificate?
PACS offers an 18-credit hour undergraduate Certificate in Peace, Conflict, and Security. The PACS Certificate is an individually tailored program of study that provides students with 1) skills to more constructively handle conflict in family, workplace, community, and international settings, 2) a better understanding of public policy controversies and international affairs, and 3) a foundation from which to pursue peace, conflict, and security related careers.
Students who participate in the PACS Certificate program are concerned about the destructive conflicts which create unnecessary violence, suffering, and injustice in our world. This program is dedicated to providing concepts and tools that can help students to successfully engage the potential conflicts they will encounter in their personal and professional life. It will connect them with other students who share these commitments, and who seek to build strong peacemaking communities on the CU Boulder campus, and in the world.
