International Peace and Conflict Resolution

A Philadelphia-area master’s degree program that provides a theoretical foundation and practical applications of peace, conflict resolution and social justice through project-based learning, internships and study abroad.

Learn Global and Local Peace Building

Our three-semester*, cohort-based Master's program will train you to be an advocate, activist, and social entrepreneur who is able to develop innovative approaches to global and local peacebuilding and development. You will be well-prepared for careers in the nonprofit/nongovernmental organization sector, as well as in other public, private, and academic fields.

Through project-based learning, global fieldwork, and internships, you will develop practical, operational skills in peace and conflict resolution and international development. In your classes, you will work with interdisciplinary faculty scholars to understand the social, political, historical, and economic contexts in which peace and conflict are produced.

*Dual Degree Programs may take longer, depending on the length of the additional program.

Alumni Reflections: Andrea Baker ’15

“The internships helped me narrow down my career goals and interests while study abroad gave me an added level of experience that other job applicants might be missing. The experience abroad also helped me to realize what parts of peace and conflict resolution I was most passionate about as well as my aspirations beyond graduate school.”
