International Peace & Conflict Resolution Program Overview

The International Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) program prepares graduates to become peacebuilders in a wide variety of professional settings and political contexts. Our students gain deep insight into the causes and impacts of war. They learn the strategies and practices for resolving armed conflict, and for preventing its resurgence. They learn to work with populations impacted by war so that they can be collaborative agents of peaceful transformation. The program embraces holistic perspectives on these topics to contribute to sustainable peace predicated on addressing root causes as well as overt manifestations of violent conflict. IPCR is the preferred choice for those seeking careers related to conflict and peace.
