The Peace, Conflict, and Security Program (PACS) at the University of Colorado Boulder is dedicated to advancing human 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 complex problems.

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.
