We live in a dangerous world, fraught with the specter of nuclear and ecological devastation and threatened by the inability of governmental and financial powers to create solutions to the age-old conflicts of peoples and nations.
Global Peace Studies is expanding its program to face the challenges in this post-Cold War period. It is an all-university, interdisciplinary minor that offers students and faculty members at San Francisco State University a unique opportunity to study and explore in depth the problems, issues, challenges, and opportunities associated with the aspiration to prevent war and to make this a just and peaceful world.
