Pre-International Peace and Conflict Resolution

About the International Peace and Conflict Resolution Program

Arcadia’s Master’s program in International Peace and Conflict Resolution educates and trains students to be advocates, activists, and social entrepreneurs who develop innovative approaches to global and local peace building from the ground-up. Preparing especially for careers in the non-profit/NGO sector as well as other public, private, and academic fields, IPCR students engage in project-based learning, global fieldwork, and internships. They work with an interdisciplinary group of faculty scholars to understand the social, political, historical, and economic contexts in which peace and conflict are produced, and they learn practical, operational skills including program planning, program evaluation, mediation, and conflict assessment.

Students in the graduate program in International Peace and Conflict Resolution pursue a Master’s degree that consists of three terms of intensive academic training at our Glenside campus including a concentration, an internship, and capstone project.

Students select concentrations by the end of their first term in the program. Concentrations are sets of specific professional skills that act as pathways to careers in particular areas of the conflict resolution field. Concentrations consist of two courses. Internships and capstone projects may also reflect concentration area.
