History of the International Peace and Conflict Resolution Program
International Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) has a history that began with the students themselves. Students in the School of International Service called for peace and conflict resolution studies and in the 1980s faculty began to offer courses on various topics of peace and conflict resolution. Greater demand by students and faculty to expand course offerings eventually led to the development of a full Master of Arts degree in International Peace and Conflict Resolution, inaugurated in 1995. With the beginning of the MA degree and later additional dual and joint degree programs, IPCR has grown steadily over the years.
