The University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies invites applications to its Ph.D. Program in Peace Studies.  

Peace studies is an interdisciplinary field that draws on political science, history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, theology, law, and other disciplines to address some of the world’s greatest challenges and shape the future of humanity and the planet. The Kroc Institute is a leading center for peace research and teaching.

Students apply for admission to one of these distinct yet related programs: 

  • Ph.D. in History and Peace Studies
  • Ph.D. in Political Science and Peace Studies
  • Ph.D. in Sociology and Peace Studies
  • Ph.D. in Psychology and Peace Studies
  • Ph.D. in Theology and Peace Studies 

The Kroc Institute offers Ph.D. students full financial support in the form of fellowships, graduate assistantships, and tuition scholarships, plus a stipend for living expenses (usually for five years).

Students are trained in the research methodologies associated with one of the five disciplines and immersed in the questions and findings of interdisciplinary peace research. Graduates are fully credentialed in one of the five disciplines as well as in peace studies. They are prepared for positions in research and teaching — in history, political science, psychology, sociology, theology, or peace studies — and for contributions to peacebuilding practice. 

The application deadline is December 15.
