About the M.A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution
The interdisciplinary Master of Arts in International Peace and Conflict Resolution program is designed to produce graduates who are well-prepared for mid-level positions in intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations (IGOs and NGOs) based primarily in the United States and Europe. These organizations, about 500 IGOs and 5,000 NGOs, have operations in all parts of the world. Academic programs in peace studies and conflict resolution, a growing international field, are interdisciplinary in nature and encompass perspectives from anthropology, biology, economics, history, law, literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion and sociology.
