Notes


  1. Students must be aware that some courses in the Course Lists have their own disciplinary prerequisites. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the Peace Studies Program, with its different approaches and expectations, it is the responsibility of students in the Peace Studies Program to meet other Faculties’, departments’ and programs’ requirements.
  2. Upon completion of 60 units of work and with the approval of both the Director of the Peace Studies Program and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, one or both terms of Level III of this program may be replaced by courses of study at a university or universities under the Humanities Studies Elsewhere program.
