The MA in Human Security and Peacebuilding program is a 36 credit, two-year, interdisciplinary graduate program that responds to the increasing demand for leadership in humanitarian assistance, social reconstruction, conflict management and peacebuilding in international contexts. Peacebuilding is viewed as a broad concept which emphasizes social transformation integrating short-term (development) initiatives into long-term, sustainable peace processes. The program provides working professionals, or those aspiring to work in the field, with the theoretical and practical skills necessary to help restore peace and civil society in post-conflict contexts.
The majority of this program is experienced through online learning. Each online course will be nine weeks in length, with a two-week break between courses. During the course of your two-year program, you will attend two, two-week on-campus residencies.
