FALL OPEN COURSE!!
PACS 2500 Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies Fall 2013 MWF 11:00-11:50 MCOL W100
Guy Burgess, Instructor
Ever wonder why societies the world over can’t seem to solve the big problems — problems like poverty, discrimination, war, climate change, and inequality? A big part of the problem is that we can’t construc-tively handle conflicts over how to deal with these problems. This lecture class introduces students to the highly interdisciplinary field of Peace and Conflict Studies. Everyone, no matter what their future goals, needs to understand the role conflict plays at the interpersonal, community, national, and international levels. This course introduces a set of theories and practices that can help you more successfully deal with life’s countless conflict predicaments.
Sustainable Practices is a non-credit program taught by instructors who are local and regional experts from both the private and public sector.
Most of our students are working professionals who are interested in developing their skills further, which usually means that class is both educational and an excellent networking opportunity.
For those CU students who are entering the workforce, the connections they make could be of great value. If you would like information on our program, please send us an email or call (303)492-7438.
