Did you know that you can receive a minor in Nonviolence and Peace Studies at the URI??? In the word’s of our new President…Yes You Can!
How do you start? Well first look over how to fulfill the minor’s requirements by clicking here.
- The colloquium in Nonviolence and Peace Studies-a 1-credit Spring Semester course that gives an overview of the field.
- Complete a nonviolence training experience such as one of the two-day workshops offered by URI’s Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies. Then sign up for three credits of directed reading/independent study focused on the history, theory, and application of nonviolence.
- A wide array of interdisciplinary courses to fulfill the remaining requirements.
You may want to talk to the minor’s advisor Dr. Charles Collyer, an associate of the Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies and a scholar in nonviolence. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401.874.4227.
Then fill out the one-page Declaration of Minor form (this form is available from an Academic Dean’s office or by clicking here!) and start studying Nonviolence!
