Peace & Conflict Studies
This internationally renowned programme is offered by leading academics from the International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE) at Ulster University. It is a unique opportunity to undertake an interdisciplinary graduate programme characterised by academic excellence, within the context of a vibrant and culturally rich society emerging from conflict. Attracting students from a range of countries and a wide variety of academic backgrounds, it has a strong focus on critically assessing the causes and consequences of conflict and examining the theories and practices of post-violence peacebuilding.
You will work to address the causes and consequences of conflict locally and internationally, and to promote better peace making and peacebuilding strategies. The experience of engaging with leading academics and practitioners in the field is a hallmark of the programme and the location of Northern Ireland ensures that there is an open door between classroom and experiential learning.
