Deadline to Apply for 2014 Cohort: 30 August, to start in January
The UPEACE Doctoral Programme seeks to provide candidates with a holistic and interdisciplinary theoretical understanding of diverse themes and problems in peace and conflict studies as well as strategies in peacebuilding. The Programme also offers a broad range of research concentrations and specializations including:
The Department which is responsible for the concentration area of a doctoral candidate shall serve as the home department for the interdisciplinary doctoral programme of the candidate.
Upon successful graduation from the UPEACE Doctoral Programme, students will be prepared for university teaching, research, or advanced positions in Peace and Conflict Studies-related professional fields. Specifically, students will have developed a sophisticated understanding of research practices and methodologies, will have internalized sound scholarly values and academic integrity, and will have begun to develop a record of published research and conference presentations.
The doctoral degree programme in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University for Peace is conceived of as a professional degree.
