Graduate Programs of CJP
Online Options for 2020-21
Because the COVID-19 pandemic is highly unpredictable, the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding (CJP) is making all courses accessible online for the 2020-2021 academic year.
- New students will have a fully online program in the fall semester and an option to remain online or move to Harrisonburg in January for the spring semester.
- It will be possible to complete the full degree online but we hope to see everyone back on campus for Summer Peacebuilding Institute (SPI) and our delayed 25th Anniversary celebration in May and June 2021.
- The online program includes careful attention to creating the experience of a genuine community that is central to the CJP program.
