Welcome back to all faculty, staff, and students. I hope your semester is off to a great start.
We are in the middle of the drop-add period, and I want to take the opportunity to let you know that there are Peace and Conflict Studies opportunities beyond Swarthmore at our sister colleges, Bryn Mawr and Haverford. Courses that count toward a Concentration in Peace, Conflict, and Social Justice Studies at Bryn Mawr College or a Concentration in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights at Haverford College may also be applied to a minor in Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore. You can read more about the Tri-College consortium’s respective programs at http://bit.ly/tricopeace-info You will also find contact information for each program in that document. Peace studies offerings at Haverford and Bryn Mawr can allow you to study topics not offered at Swarthmore or give you options when you encounter scheduling conflicts between Swarthmore courses. Take advantage of the Tri-co consortium, and feel free to contact the coordinators at any of the colleges!
