Aims of the MA Programme in Peace and Conflict Studies

The MA Programme in Peace and Conflict Studies aims at enhancing students´ competences and abilities in crisis prevention, conflict management and the promotion of peace. Students learn to analyse conflicts and their underlying causes, they develop practical skills in peaceful conflict transformation and develop and deepen their motivation to participate in the creation of a world society living in peace and justice.

The study programme enhances students´ abilities to work in an academic-analytic manner. They gain deep knowledge about research approaches and methods used in social sciences, which are required for analysis in peace studies. Students are enabled to identify and classify problems and to develop strategies for their solution. The study programme aims at furthering students´ interdisciplinary and practice-oriented research competence. This is supported by research projects and internships.
