The minor in Peace and Conflict Studies is designed to give students an introduction to the study of the dynamics of peace and conflict. The minor serves students who wish to have a thematic unity to the course work taken outside their major field. The PACS minor is open to all undergraduates except PACS majors.
Completing the Minor:
To apply for the minor, students must have completed at least one PACS course with a grade of B or better and have an overall GPA of 2.0. Completed applications and a Petition for Confirmation of Minor Program must be submitted to the IAS office no later than the last day of instruction of the term immediately preceding your final semester.
At least three of the upper-division courses must be taken at Berkeley. Transfer courses must be approved by an advisor.
All courses satisfying minor requirements must be taken for a letter-grade. PACS 197, 198, and 199 cannot be used to fulfill minor requirements.
A minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved in all course work used to satisfy the minor requirements.
Complete the minor within the 130-unit maximum limit for graduation.
No more than one course may overlap with the student’s major program.
