The Program

Studying Peace and Conflict Studies builds your knowledge about the forces that generate contemporary conflict and the processes and practices that contribute to conflict prevention, resolution and peacebuilding. Our students graduate with the knowledge and practical skills they need to engage in conflict analysis and resolution, peacekeeping and peacebuilding in the contemporary global context.
