Our students promote conflict resolution and peace-building locally and globally through theory, research, and practice.

You have the opportunity to study conflict resolution and peace-building through our Development Policy & Practice master's program, developing the communication, negotiation, mediation, and dialogue skills necessary to promote conflict transformation around the world.

Through our Development Policy & Practice master's program, you can choose either the Master of Public Administration (MPA) or MA in International Policy Studies, which emphasizes leadership and management in public policy and conflict resolution organizations. We also offer a Conflict Resolution certificate program for professionals and graduate students.

Our students are actively involved in the Center for Conflict Studies, which contributes to the theory and practice of the conflict resolution field through programs and publications. We emphasize bridging research and practice to better understand and manage conflicts effectively while advocating for non-violent change.
