International Peace and Conflict Resolution
The International Peace and Conflict Resolution master’s degree offers an innovative curriculum that allows students to develop an area of concentration within the discipline of international peace and conflict resolution, build an international network of contacts among the international conflict resolution community, and gain practical experience in the field. Students in this program don't just read about peace and conflict studies, they travel to key sites of international conflict and research real-world solutions.
The problem-based research model lets students combine peace studies with examination of international law and organizations, mediation and conflict transformation, public health issues, economic development, environmental sustainability, and international relations.
This international peace program goes well beyond the concepts of peace studies and human rights by incorporating field work and problem-based learning focused on conflict resolution and sustainable development.
Graduates are prepared to enter today's workforce as proponents of peaceful social change. Skills learned in the International Peace and Conflict Resolution program can be applied to a number of diverse fields, such as: human rights and international law, humanitarian relief and international public health, environmental conflict management and sustainable development, post-conflict reconstruction and professional mediation.
