Program Description

MA in International Peace Studies

University for Peace

The Master of Arts Degree Programme in International Peace Studies provides an interdisciplinary and critical understanding and analysis of the causes and consequences of a wide range of contemporary conflicts and violence that impact on global, international and human security. Multiple sources and categories of violence to be explored include militarization, armed conflicts, “terrorism,” economic, social and gender injustices, cultural and religious identities, transnational organized crime and competition over environmental resources. Drawing on case-studies and exemplars from diverse regions and societies, the programme also examines strategies and organizational/institutional frameworks and mechanisms, including initiatives of the UN, other international/regional agencies and civil society organizations and movements, for resolving and transforming such conflicts and building peace at local, national, international and global levels.

Graduates of the programme will gain knowledge, capacities, skills and motivation relevant to professional work in international, national and local government or civil society agencies or organizations in fields related to conflict analysis, resolution and transformation; nonviolence; disarmament; peacemaking, peacekeeping and peacebuilding; security sector reform; local/global justice; transnational organized crime; and conflict and peace-sensitive policy-making as well as peace and conflict studies/research.
