The aim of this course is to provide students with a general understanding of the nature and attributes of war and peace by illuminating various aspects of wartime experiences, including the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and at the same time, to explore contemporary issues relating to world peace in a global era. It is designed primarily for students who seek to gain a deeper knowledge of the importance of peace-making by participating in lectures, discussions, and featured programs.
Students’ grades for the course will be based on the quality of their participation in the classes and activities. The grade will also be based on their participation and performance in a group project task where they will have the opportunity to show the knowledge and perspectives they have gained during the course.
Eligible participants are second year or higher undergraduate students or those with higher levels of education (including graduate students).
