As a student at the department you will engage with a vibrant research environment and thrive among motivated high-performing fellow students. All classes are taught in English and the student body regularly comes from all corners of the world.

Upon completion of the program, you will have acquired a thorough understanding of advanced issues in peace and conflict research in order to be able to critically examine, assess and analyze the origin, dynamics and resolution of armed conflicts on a scientific basis. You acquire knowledge and skills that provide you with the capacity to solve problems independently and the ability to monitor and critically evaluate the development of knowledge within peace and conflict research.

Through elective courses the program provides an opportunity to obtain a more individual profile by specializing in areas such as the Emerging security threats; Gender, peace and war; or Protection of Civilians.
