The following outlines requirements for those students who entered the Combined Honours Peace Studies (B.A.) program prior to Fall 2021. Students entering as of September 2021 should refer to the Combined Honours in Global Peace and Social Justice program.

Peace Studies is an interdisciplinary program where students investigate systems of social inequity and injustice at the local, national and global levels. Students in the program develop research skills and practical knowledge to understand the root causes and perpetuation of social conflict, violence, and oppression in politics and culture. They learn strategies for reimagining and making transformative change in order to build peaceful, equitable, and just communities. The program offers many opportunities for community-based learning through our experiential learning courses and public-engagement events.


Completion of any Level I program and a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0 including a grade of at least C in PEACEST 1A03 or, if not taken, three units acceptable to the Peace Studies program. Students who have not completed PEACEST 1A03 should contact the Director of the Global Peace and Social Justice Program.


  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.
