The Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies has sought to be a catalyst, encouraging faculty throughout Cornell to increase attention paid in their courses to issues of war and peace. Reppy Institute members also stimulate interest in peace and conflict studies through numerous guest lectures they give in a variety of Cornell courses. The Reppy Institute does not, however, offer academic credit or a major or minor. Academic credit is offered by the the regular college departments at Cornell.
Courses related to peace and conflict studies are offered through the regular college departments at Cornell. Undergraduate and graduate courses are offered through the departments of anthropology, government, history, physics, sociology, economics, and science and technology studies in the College of Arts and Sciences and through the Law School. Several undergraduate courses were developed with support from the program, including War and Democracy, and Introduction to Peace Studies.
