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.
