Master of Arts in Peacebuilding

Deepening the practice of peacebuilding.

NOTE: The MA in Peacebuilding will not be offered for Fall, 2017.

As a leader and practitioner in your field, you understand the value of continued learning. That's why we created the Kroc School Master of Arts in Peacebuilding. We designed it for highly motivated peace practitioners who have five or more years of experience in peacebuilding areas such as: human rights, development, social innovation, conflict resolution, advocacy and humanitarian relief. Through the program you gain new ideas and frameworks for understanding the causes of violence, injustice and oppression, with an emphasis on the changing nature of these phenomena at the local, national and global levels.

As you discover fresh approaches to social problems, you'll not only expand your knowledge, but also your global networks as you meet local and international leaders in peace and justice.
