Guide to Ph.D. Programs in Conflict Resolution and Related Fields

Many individuals around the world are interested in doing graduate work in Peace and Conflict Resolution at the MA or Ph.D. level. This guide is focused solely on Ph.D. level programs. If you're interested in MA level programs, please consult the MA guide.

Several colleagues at Eastern Mennonite University, in their Conflict Transformation Program have put together a list of Ph.D. programs related to peace and conflict resolution. Click on Download PeaceandconflictPhdPrograms.doc to download the list in a Word Document or see below.

To compliment Craig's list, please look into The Heller School's MA program in Coexistence & Conflict's website that lists many more PhD programs (this page will be available shortly but please stay tuned http://heller.brandeis.edu/academic/ma-coex/index.html)

Kindly add the following to MA and PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies Programmes on the PCDN database:

The University of Ibadan, Nigeria, offers MA, MPhil and PhD programmes in Peace and Conflict Studies at the Institute of African Studies of the university:

www.pgschoolui.com, www.pgs.ui.edu.ng/, http://pgs.ui.edu.ng/

 

Please not that the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CEPACS) is a completely different centre dedicated to the professional master’s degree course in refugee and humanitarian studies while the MA and PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies are academic programmes resident in the Institute of African Studies of the university

 

Again, related undergraduate and graduate programmes are also run in a number of the well over 120 public, private and mission universities across the country, to which anyone can gain access by using the search engine, and I can tell you that academic research in Nigeria is very robust.

Add also the University of Oregon's Master's degree in Conflict and Dispute Resolution. Full information at conflict.uoregon.edu. Cohort model with maximum 28 students per year. Located amidst the beauty of central Oregon and the Willamette River Valley, an hour from the coast, an hour from the mountains, an hour to the high desert country, an hour and a half to Portland, and on the road to a more collaborative future.
