These questions, and many others, represent the core of the program in nonviolence at St. Bonaventure University, one of the longest-standing peace studies programs in the world.
The program offers more courses in nonviolence than any other program in the United States, and is unique among the 350 other peace studies programs in the country because of its emphasis on nonviolence as a way of life and not just a strategy for gaining success.
Students interested in nonviolence may design their own courses of study in nonviolence as an interdisciplinary major. They may also pursue a minor in nonviolence through an already-approved course of study. Read more about our Nonviolence Curricula.
