"I loved taking an in depth look at theological ideas of war and peace, examining their validity, and their implications in people's lives. Having taken PACS 330 I have a better idea of how much someone's religious convictions play a role in their interaction with violence."

- REID KENNEL, Honours Peace and Conflict Studies, Speech Communication Minor, Human Resources Management Minor
