This course will have three distinct parts: Orientation, Introduction to Peacebuilding, and Capstone Preparation, all designed to set students up for success in their year at Hartford Seminary. The Orientation will serve to introduce students to each other, and prepare them for a year of study with Hartford Seminary. Introduction to Peacebuilding will familiarize students with a collective peacebuilding vocabulary they will use throughout the year. Additionally, this short course will introduce international students to the participatory nature of higher education in the United States. Capstone Preparation will be done in two parts.
