Peace and Global Studies (PAGS) majors explore strategies for constructing a just and peaceful world. The goal of the program is to develop your competencies in fields contributing toward social transformation and peace.
PAGS is a rigourous major, but the challenge is invigorating! Our students are known for their serious work ethic combined with their unmatched senses of humor.
Our majors are also known as passionate campus activists. They’ve been involved include in the REInvestment Campaign to urge Earlham to divest from coal and petroleum extraction; and the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, in support of Palestinian nonviolent resistance to occupation.
PAGS seniors research and design public presentations on the topic of their choice. Recent topics have been: “Race and the Prison-Industrial Complex,” “Whose Bodies Matter? Drone Warfare and Surveillance” and “Is Social Media a Game-Changer for Progressive Social Movements?”
