You can check the Graduate Institute of Peace Studies at Kyung Hee University.
Yeah, i´ve already checked that site, hope you are doing well.
The School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University, the oldest confict/peace studies school is working on trying to get a conflict/peace studies program in Korea at the new campus in Songdo.
This could happen as early as next year, but it will probably be a few months before we know the status.
Feel free to contat me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I will keep in contact with you, I really would like to study there, thank you :)
It sounds interesting! Could you give me more info?
Does this program provide Ph.D.?
My email address is email@example.com. Thanks!
I´ve already ckecked the page, the information is really useful for me, thank you :)
HI Cristina and Roland,
Cristina, look at the UN University for Peace Asia Pacific Centre in Seoul. They offer MA and (soon-to-be) PhD degrees in peace studies. http://upeaceap.org/
Roland, will the George Mason program in Songdo offer a PhD or certificate program? I'd be interested in either of these options.
I've been living in Korea for several years and the two best programs I've seen aside from the one at Kyung Hee, are at Yonsei University:
They have an MA in International Cooperation with several different concentrations. It is one of the SKY universities (the three most prestigious Korean universities, which stand for Seoul National University, Korea University, and Yonsei University).
The second program (MA in Peace and Security) is at Korea University, which is also one of the SKY universities.
There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to studying in Korea, but overall I think most people I know that have done MA programs in Korea have been fairly happy with them. It is just worth finding out as much information as you can beforehand so you know what to expect. I am not an expert at these two universities but I know a bit about general living and studying in Korea issues.
I hope this helps.
@ Benjamin Gross
Please can you share some of the known disadvantages and advantages for studying in S.Korea? Thanks
Some of the disadvantages:
The advantages of studying in Korea:
Overall, I would say that it depends on one's career goals. If someone wants to be a teacher, professor, or academic in a prestigious university, a Korean degree may not help too much. If the degree is for the experience of Korea, increased knowledge of a subject, or studying East Asian society and politics, then I think studying in Korea could be very worthwhile.
Thanks for the information, indeed i want to study there because i´m pretty interested in East Asian politics
