Did you know that, according to FinAid.org, the average cost of a master’s degree for students is between $30,000 and $120,000 in the USA? 

How long would it take you to pay that off? 

When you study at the University for Peace you do not need to spend the next 20 years paying off your student loan. A master’s degree from UPEACE costs $19,500 in total and you get to spend a year in beautiful Costa Rica.

However, most of our students do not pay full tuition as we offer many different forms of financial assistance and discounts.

Depending on your nationality or place of residence, affiliations with the Peace Corps, UN Agencies or Partner Universities, or based on your academic achievements, you could qualify for up to a 50% discount on tuition.

UPEACE offers post-graduate programs in International Law, Human Rights, Gender, Environment, Peace and Conflict Studies and Peace Education, among others. Our campus is strategically located in San Jose, Costa Rica, a country that abolished its army in 1948 and ran almost entirely on renewable energy sources in 2017.

Our students come from all walks of life and all corners of the world, and both their previous experience and the one acquired at UPEACE prepare them to work anywhere in the world with a global vision and ample multicultural sensitivity.

So whether you want to create an NGO to bring safe drinking water to communities in New Mexico like UPEACER George McGraw, create a not-for-profit computer science education center in Palestine like UPEACER Phillip Byars, present your project for world peace at UN Headquarters like UPEACER Sarah Cowley, build houses for vulnerable populations using recycled plastic blocks like UPEACER Aude Mulliez, or run a refugee camp in Mosul like UPEACER Hovig Etyemezian, the University for Peace can give you the tools to make a difference.

Take the plunge, study at the UN-mandated University for Peace!
