Peace and Justice Studies
Peace and Justice Studies is the academic program that embodies Manhattan College’s Lasallian commitment to advancing social justice. Manhattan College has one of the oldest peace and justice studies programs in the United States. The first Peace and Justice Studies course was offered in 1966, and the Peace and Justice Studies major was established in 1971.
Pope Paul VI, in a letter to Manhattan College on the occasion of the inaugural peace studies convocation in 1967
Peace is not something that is won and achieved for all time. It is a state that has to be nourished constantly with works of peace ...It is imperative to educate in the ways of peace and to be educated in those same ways.
