Course DescriptionConflict and Peace Studies at UNCG is dedicated to providing high quality, professional training in multiple conflict intervention and prevention skills such as mediation, negotiation, facilitation, restorative practices, violence prevention, anti-bullying initiatives, and collaborative problem solving.
UNCG was named a “Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs. Now in its 4th year, the G.I. Jobs team approaches 8,000+ schools, asking them to participate in this industry leading annual survey to help military personnel, veterans and military dependents find schools that are going above and beyond for them. If you are an active duty military member or veteran interested in Conflict and Peace Studies, please contact Tom Matyók for assistance.
Beginning fall 2012, the Conflict and Peace Studies Program will participate in a student exchange with the Department of Politics and Management at the University of Konstanz, Germany. For fall 2013, we will launch a dual-degree program with the University of Konstanz. Participants will gain international exposure, along with scholarship, research, and job preparation skills. Ultimately, this experience will enrich careers in peace building; post-conflict governance and development; humanitarian aid; and conflict transformation and analysis in the global marketplace.
