Description

A Certificate in Peace and Post-Conflict Studies will equip students across a number of faculties and disciplines with the knowledge of the complexity of instituting measures that address underlying sources of conflict and provide them with hands-on practical approaches to sustaining peace. This certificate program will introduce the student to the world of diplomacy, humanitarian interventions and peace building. Through interdisciplinary courses and internships, the student will learn how to design strategies for building sustainable peace in war torn areas of the world. /// The MA Program in Gender and Social Justice Studies is committed to intersectional analysis of social justice, and we take interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the political, aesthetic, and ethical questions that arise from the study of gender and social justice. Students will develop the skills necessary to produce independent scholarly analysis, research, and action aimed at social justice and the reduction of social inequalities.
