Why study Peace and Conflict Studies?

The major views peace and conflict studies as a distinctive ethical and intellectual approach to the causes and dynamics of conflict. It will provide an in-depth understanding of equity, diversity and inclusivity in peace and conflict dynamics. It will give students in-depth knowledge of strategies and processes for responding to, managing and resolving conflict from the local to the international; peacebuilding and the non-violent resolution of conflictl and the relationship between the theories and practices of conflict mediation and management. Graduates of this major will be able to analyse the causes and dynamics of conflict, assess and evaluate evidence, design and promote strategies for peace and conflict resolution, articulate the advantages of peace and conflict resolution approaches, design peace and conflict interventions with a diverse array of stakeholders, recognise the importance of equity, diversity and inclusivity in developing peace and conflict resolution strategies, negotiate and problem-solve, and translate learning into policy, engagement and impact. Graduates of this major will be responsive to human differences, critical and analytical thinkers, ethical regarding the lived experience of people in conflict, and open-minded.
