[Speaker Series, Fall 2012 ]

FAU’s Peace Studies Program, established in 1999 within the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, has brought together students, faculty, and community members to explore pathways to peace and the process of peacebuilding. As an interdisciplinary program, Peace Studies draws from a broad range of fields: anthropology, literary studies, political science, communication, history, ethics, social work and many more to offer an undergraduate certificate designed to complement a traditional major in any field. The FAU Peace Studies Program sponsors speakers specializing in peace studies related issues, free and open to the public thanks so the generosity of the Chastain-Johnson Fund and the Schmidt Family Foundation.  For more information about FAU’s Peace Studies Program, visit www.fau.edu/peacestudies, Facebook, and Twitter.
