Peacebuilding in a Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has eclipsed the planet and created a multitude of challenges for societies around the world. The need for peacebuilding has reached an incredible high as we respond to COVID-19. The IPCR graduate program remains committed to providing quality education and practitioner skill development for our students that incorporates unique and innovative virtual platforms. While our physical engagement may be limited, we are using this time to reach further and wider into the world to build peace together.

Learn Global and Local Peace Building

Our two-year*, cohort-based Master's program will train you to be a skilled practitioner 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.
