Genocide Studies and Human Rights 

The minor in Genocide Studies and Human Rights aims to develop conscientious, socially-responsible, engaged citizens by providing students with the opportunity to explore the causes, conditions and consequences of genocide and to recognize human rights as a means to promote peace and justice.

Procedure to declare intent to pursue a minor
 
Students declare their intent to pursue a minor through the Office of the Registrar before the end of their sophomore year. Students are encouraged to declare earlier to ensure appropriate advising. Students must also identify the minor when completing the Petition to Graduate form. A minor will be documented on a student’s transcript but will not appear on the diploma.
