Students meet with the director, ideally in the spring of their sophomore year, to work out a plan for the concentration. All concentrators are required to take three core courses: PEAC 101 Introduction to PJHR; PEAC 201 Applied Ethics of PJHR; and PEAC 395 Capstone Seminar in PJHR. Alternate courses may on occasion fulfill a core requirement.
Students are required to take three additional elective courses for the concentration. They will choose these courses in consultation with the concentration director, working out a plan that focuses the concentration regionally, conceptually, or around a particular substantive problem. A course does not have to appear on an existing list of electives or have "peace" or "justice" in its title to count toward the concentration. The aim is to articulate a focus that helps each student pursue her or his interests in PJHR.
The PJHR concentration may overlap with students' majors by 1-2 courses but need not do so. Each student will work out a plan of study appropriate to his or her focus with the concentration director.
