Description

The United Nations-mandated University for Peace (UPEACE) is accepting applications for theOnline MA programme in Sustainable Peace in the Contemporary World.


This unique online MA programme, which can be completed in a flexible manner within a period of 1.5 years to 4 years, engages competent professionals and researchers from all over the world with the aim of building capacities for resolving pressing and complex global problems that concern humanity. The programme covers a wide spectrum of courses moving from a study of the origins of conflict at the personal, local, national, regional and international levels to the promotion and practice of peace in the contemporary world. The programme discusses the responsibilities and capacities of all social sectors, including key political and economic institutions, as well as civil society and individuals, and their potential impact on the environmental and social aspects of peace and conflict. Skills and tools for the maintenance of peace are emphasized throughout the programme, including analysing and understanding conflict from multiple perspectives. Every course in the programme shares a commitment to ethics, fundamental human rights and values, gender equality, and multiculturalism.


The hallmark of this online programme is its trans-disciplinary nature which draws on scholarship and methodologies from across academia. The complexities of today's world, and the developments of the last thirty years in understanding peace and conflict, demand an approach that crosses boundaries while seeking to create innovative directions of inquiry in the main field of study. All courses are well-integrated within the programme, bringing together theories, concepts, in-depth case studies, best-practices from around the world, sound methodologies, and the valuable contributions of course-takers.
