In recognition of the unprecedented dimensions of issues of security, war and peace, human rights and global justice, and sustainable development in a world of violent conflict, the program in International Educational Development (Department of International and Transcultural Studies) offers a degree concentration in Peace and Human Rights Education.  Peace and Human Rights Education is primarily concerned with addressing direct, structural & cultural violence through the transformation of pedagogy, curriculum, and policy related to education in both formal and non-formal contexts.  Through the concentration, students are provided with a conceptual understanding of issues related to peace and human rights, as well as practical skills in curriculum development.  Both masters and doctoral students are required to take two core courses in Peace Education and, in addition, can select courses related to peace, security, conflict resolution, human rights, and global justice offered throughout the College and within other programs at Columbia University, Jewish Theological Seminary, and Union Theological Seminary.
