The Foundations of Peace: Clayton Thyne

This fall, Political Science Professor Clayton Thyne will be teaching A&S 100: Introduction to Peace Studies. The class will serve as a portal into the wide range of theories exploring the nature and causes of conflict, the possibilities for conflict resolution, and the foundations of peace.

Paired with this course is a new interdisciplinary certificate in Peace Studies from the College of Arts and Sciences. As a part of the new certificate, students interested in expanding their understanding of issues of peace and justice at both local and global levels will be able to take a series of courses specific to the certificate as well as courses in their own fields of study that intersect with discussions of peace.
 
In this podcast, Professor Thyne discusses his class, the field of Peace Studies itself, and the advantages that the new certificate program affords University of Kentucky students.
