The Minor in Human Rights and Peace Studies provides students with a unique, holistic, and interdisciplinary approach to the protection of fundamental human entitlements and the development of peaceful social relations. It is a key curricular endeavor of the Center for Human Rights and Peace Studies at Lehman College. Although the Minor is particularly valuable for those majoring in fields related to society and the law, such as Political Science, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, and History, it also complements various professional programs dealing with fundamental human interests and cross-border interactions. The Minor will be housed in the Department of Anthropology.
