The Peace, Conflict, and Security Certificate Program (PACS) is an interdisciplinary field, focused on advancing our understanding of conflict dynamics and improving our ability to wisely, equitably, and efficiently handle conflict.  The program empowers students by teaching them sophisticated advocacy, collaboration, and peacebuilding skills that are essential to solving today's big problems.

PACS offers an individually tailored program of study that provides students with 1) the ability to more constructively handle conflict in family, workplace, and community settings, 2) a foundation for peace, conflict, and security-related careers, and 3) a better understanding of public policy controversies.
