Now more than ever, the world needs skilled peacebuilders who understand global and local dynamics and who take strategic action for peace and justice. Come study strategic peacebuilding at one of the world’s leading centers for the study of violent conflict and strategies for sustainable peace. The Kroc Institute administers the International Peace Studies (IPS) concentration of the Master of Global Affairs (MGA), a program of the Keough School of Global Affairs. The IPS curriculum is rigorously interdisciplinary and pushes students to move beyond simplistic solutions to violence and toward conflict transformation in complex and dynamic environments.
Following a year of coursework on campus, participants in the IPS concentration will spend six months working with leading organizations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, or the United States, strengthening their professional skills through reflective practice. Students return to campus for their final semester to complete an integrative master’s capstone project.
