Center for Human Rights & Peace Studies

Curriculum Development

The Center is working with Lehman faculty to develop an interdisciplinary minor in Human Rights and Peace Studies. Lehman teachers are also encouraged to contact the Center to share ideas for courses relating to human rights and peace studies in their respective disciplines.

The Minor in Human Rights and Peace Studies will provide students a unique, holistic and interdisciplinary approach to the protection of fundamental human entitlements and the development of peaceful social relations. It is a key curricular endeavor of the Center for Human Rights and Peace Studies at Lehman College. Although the minor is particularly valuable for those majoring in fields related to society and the law, such as Policial Science, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology and History, it will also complement various professional programs dealing with fundamental human interests and cross-border interactions.

In Spring 2013, the Steering Committee approved and submitted the curriculum for the minor to the Lehman College Curriculum Committee. It hopes students can begin enrolling in the minor in 2014.
