Peace Studies

(Integrated Learning) Cross-Disciplinary

SACE Stage 2

20 credits


Peace Studies examines and challenges the concept of peace and analyses the efficacy of nonviolent ways of resolving conflict. A strong focus will be on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each student will select one to focus on, and as part of their assessments, will take action to make a difference towards that goal. The subject also engages with contemporary issues such as globalisation, climate change and refugee flows as we investigate the effects that has on achieving peace. Assessment will be through product development and exhibitions.
