Environmental violence and its impact on everyday life. Culture, religion, and imperialism, and their impact on U.S. foreign policy. The role of memory in shaping responses to violence. Providing trauma-informed support for refugees and migrants. Developing pedagogies for peace and liberation. The role of government and grassroots peacebuilding initiatives in the Colombian peace process. Traits and techniques that shape peaceable child development.

This list represents a small sample of the critical issues that doctoral students are researching at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.

The Kroc Institute’s groundbreaking Ph.D. program empowers students to become outstanding scholars and teachers who are making important contributions to a growing body of peacebuilding knowledge and practice with the goal of addressing violence (in many forms) and alleviating human suffering.

Graduates of the Ph.D. program are fully trained, professionalized, and marketable in the multidisciplinary field of peace studies, as well as one of six disciplines in the humanities and social sciences: anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, or theology.

During their time at Notre Dame, students are equipped for a wide variety of scholarly, teaching, and professional positions, including:

  • Interdisciplinary academic positions;
  • Scholar-practitioner roles in intergovernmental, governmental, or nongovernmental organizations; 
  • Policymaking roles; and 
  • Positions requiring expertise in the peace and conflict subfields of anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, or theology. 

Full funding is available for all students accepted to the program. All applications must be completed by December 15, 2021, for fall 2022 admissions.

Apply now.
