Researching peace processes and negotiations can benefit all who engage in any and all types of relationships. Unless peace messages are communicated effectively between parties, peace may not be achieved. Spending time in a traditional classroom setting having college students define, discuss, and study peace will offer students the opportunity to define peace for themselves and how they wish to live peace and harmony in the world. Research and study in peace and communication can provide tools for peace building, which will enhance interpersonal and intrapersonal communication particularly in situations of conflict. This capstone project is the creation of an undergraduate class in Peace Communication.
