IIP and the MASTERS DEGREE IN PEACE AND CONFLICT STUDIES
The IIP is a strategic partner of the Masters in Peace and Conflict Study at Rutgers University.
Hosted in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, this Masters Degree aims at providing students with theoretical knowledge and applied skills to tackle a large scale of issues related to peace such as:
The Master’s Program in Peace and Conflict Studies has been designed to offer to students a unique opportunity to also address peace and conflict issues in their interdisciplinary dimension. Graduates will acquire a dual competence in understanding violent conflict, such as war, genocide, ethnic violence, and terrorism; and, on the other hand, in non-violence, including both non-violent prosecution of conflict as through social movements and civil resistance, and in moving away from violent struggle toward reconciliation and sustainable peace.
The International Institute for Peace will partner with international, national and local organizations and institutes, notably within the UNESCO environment, to provide opportunities for research and practical internships for students
The students pursuing the Master’s program will complete 36 credits, usually over two years, and pass a final examination. (Extension for more than three years is subject to an approval process).
Advisors will be assigned based on individual students’ areas of interest. Requests for transfer credits will be considered after a student has been admitted.
