INCORE Announcement - 13 January 2014
MSc in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies
Now Accepting Applications for September 2014
The MSc. in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies offers students a unique opportunity to undertake a graduate programme characterised by academic excellence within the context of a vibrant and culturally rich society emerging from conflict.
Based within the University of Ulster's International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE)<http://www.incore.ulst.ac.uk/about>, an associate site of the United Nations University, the programme, now in its 25th year, has attracted over 400 graduates from more than 30 countries.
INCORE's teaching and research staff are active practitioners called on to advise in many conflict situations, to facilitate negotiations and engage in projects that promote peace and reconciliation. Staff experience and the location of the programme in a society emerging from conflict offers students a genuinely applied learning experience.
The Programme is located on the Magee campus of the University of Ulster<http://www.ulster.ac.uk/> along the shores of Lough Foyle in the second largest city of Northern Ireland, Derry~Londonderry. This is a city that has a complex and compelling political history, and boasts a vibrant range of cultural traditions and was the UK City of Culture<http://www.cityofculture2013.com/> in 2013. It is renowned as one of the finest walled cities in Europe, and is the gateway into the natural splendours of the North West of the island, and the North Coast, including the UNESCO-designated Giant's Causeway and the Antrim Coast.
The one-year full-time programme consists of eight taught modules, of which five are compulsory and three are selected from a range of options. To obtain the MSc. the student also completes a 15,000 word dissertation. The University welcomes applications from part-time students who have an interest in this area of study. The part-time programme generally takes two years to complete.
The formal teaching is supplemented by an informal programme of lectures, seminars and study visits, and students have access to a range of events organised by INCORE and other associated institutes at the university.
