Applications are now being accepted for the International Peace Studies Concentration of the Master of Global Affairs program beginning in Fall 2019. This program builds on the strength of over 30 years of education and training for peacebuilding professionals at the Kroc Institute of International Peace Studies, now part of the new Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame. At the Kroc Institute, we emphasize strategic peacebuilding, ensuring that our graduates are able to think critically about the causes of violence and act decisively to build the conditions that lead to human flourishing.
In the two-year Master of Global Affairs program, all students undertake an interdisciplinary core curriculum. Students in the International Peace Studies Concentration receive specialized training in Foundations of Peace Studies and in Strategic Peacebuilding. A hallmark of the program is an extended six-month field internship experience with an organization dedicated to working for peace and justice around the world. Past field site locations have included Colombia, Israel-Palestine, Kenya, South Africa, and Washington D.C. Our field organizations range from policy-oriented think tanks to civil society groups to local grassroots organizations. While in the field, students also conduct independent research with coaching from a faculty advisor. This research serves as the basis for a final master’s capstone project.
All students admitted to the International Peace Studies program are eligible for a full scholarship that covers tuition and includes a living stipend. All costs associated with the field internship experience are covered as well. The application deadline for Fall 2019 admittance is December 15, 2018.
Join our network of over 1,700 peace studies alumni from the University of Notre Dame who work worldwide to advance justice and advocate for sustainable peace.
