Welcome to the new academic year!

The fall semester has just begun and the new Bachelor students are taking the A-course in Peace and Conflict Studies. The third-year program students are now taking a course in methods to prepare them for their Bachelor theses later this semester. Our Bachelor program in Peace and Development is one of the most popular programs at Uppsala University and the admission is highly competitive.

The new Master students has begun by studying a course on the Causes of Armed Conflict. Our Master program in Peace and Conflict Studies has a strong international profile and attracts students from all around the world. Through elective courses, the program provides an opportunity to obtain an individual profile by specializing in areas such as conflict resolution or security challenges. The program also prepares students for a future career as practitioners. Many of our second-year students are now doing internships with various international organizations, government agencies, NGOs, think tanks, and other relevant employers.

The Department welcomes all new and old students to what we hope will be a challenging and exciting academic year!
