This year our Master celebrates the 20th anniversary of its creation. Our history dates back to 1994 when, thanks to our founder Dr. Vicent Martnez Guzmn, the first conference of Philosophy for Peace was conducted in the Universitat Jaume I to which more than 100 people attended.

About

There is no single way of understanding peace there are as many ways of making peace as there are diverse people and cultures

This is one of the ideas underlying the theoretical grounding of the University Masters Degree in International Peace, Conflict and Development Studies. Based on this assumption, the curriculum of the course provides specific education in the areas of peace studies, conflict transformation, development cooperation, education for peace, cultures of peace, democracy, human rights, communication by peaceful means and gender and postcolonial studies, among other areas.

Funding

From the International Master in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies we are actively working to find options that allow students from impoverished countries to fully or partially fund the costs involved in studying our programme. However, given that we depend on philanthropic donations and financial support from different organisations and institutions, the amount of money and the concept of the aid we can offer vary from year to year. For this reason, we encourage you to apply for financial support such as from your own government, scholarship programmes and further institutions in your home countries.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
