Certificate in Global Peacebuilding

USU peace statueGeorge Lopez information on peace


To provide undergraduate students with a multi-disciplinary academic understanding of the historical and contemporary causes of conflict and efforts to create peace while building practical skills in peacebuilding praxis.


Our program responds to the needs for multi-disciplinary education that creates skills sought by a range of employers, such as non-governmental organizations, state agencies, or businesses. The program mirrors with USU’s institutional mission to enable students to learn and discover, in and out of the classroom, in order to engage with a range of communities. The program offers a combination of courses and internships that allow students to learn the principles of peacebuilding and how to put these principles in to action through collaboration with a diversity of communities and stakeholders. At our core we believe that peacebuilding is an essential citizenship skill of the twenty-first century that students can begin to attain through a combination of coursework and experience.
