Advisor: Robert Hunt, Department of History
The interdisciplinary minor in War, Policy, and Society is designed to demonstrate that war is more than combat, military history, or the study of campaigns and battles. In the modern world, war has been integrated with capitalism, with the development of nationalism and empire, and with current-day terrorism and organized crime, among other things. The minor brings together the intellectual strength of several disciplines and focuses on this complex, multi-dimensional subject.
The minor consists of 18 hours of upper-division electives chosen from the list below. Courses must be selected in consultation with the minor advisor. The student must take at least one course from three of the five participating departments. No more than two courses (six hours) may be counted from any single department.
