Master of Peace and Conflict Studies
A vibrant, interdisciplinary graduate program
The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies (MPACS) offered under the Faculty of Arts is a new interdisciplinary professional program. It prepares you with the knowledge and practical skills needed to contribute to nonviolent peace building efforts. Placing a unique focus on the pivotal role that individuals within civil society play, the MPACS program explores the potential of civil society to advance peace through principled advocacy, effective programming, and dynamic engagement with the state and marketplace.
Recognizing conflict as an inescapable part of the human experience, and a potential vehicle for positive change at local, national, and international levels, this master’s degree offers a cutting-edge approach in which dynamic, sustainable, and creative solutions to conflict can be imagined, tested, and applied.
Agents of peace building
Available on either a full-time or part-time basis, the MPACS program is comprised of coursework, an optional internship and an individual research paper. Equipped with interdisciplinary knowledge and practical skills of peace building, MPACS graduates will be ready for careers in public, private or non-profit sectors that work as agents of peaceful change at community, institutional, and systematic levels.
