What We Offer

Summary

The PhD in International Conflict Management enrolls students from around the world who create a dynamic, yet intimate, educational environment. International Conflict Management is a field that currently has few opportunities for advanced training. After completing their core courses, students focus their studies in the desired research area, e.g., gender-based violence, refugee and migration challenges, and indigenous forms of dispute resolution.

Overview
This program is one of only a few available in North America. PhD students accepted into the program receive broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities that draw on an array of academic disciplines.

Purpose
This full-time, interdisciplinary, in-residence program is designed to meet the global demand for scholar-practitioners to address the complex array of international conflict and security challenges through the development and implementation of empirically based research, policy recommendations, and solutions. Our graduates are prepared to compete for university staff and tenure-track faculty appointments and a wide range of operational positions in government, non-governmental agencies, and the global business community.

Program Sections

Core Seminars
The core seminars provide interdisciplinary grounding in the fundamental theoretical concepts, epistemology, ethical and cultural foundations, and practical applications in international conflict management and resolution.

Research Methods
Preparation includes courses in research design, program evaluation, and how to use quantitative and qualitative methods.

Customized Concentrations
Students can personalize their disciplines with a wide array of electives focused in the students’ areas of interest. Students may also practice their conflict management skills in applied international settings to gain an understanding of today’s complex challenges marked by globalization.

Student Funding
We provide assistantships and a limited number of competitive fellowships each year. Students offered an assistantship are funded in the amount of $15,000 per year, with a potential summer stipend of $5,000. Program funding consists of grants, fellowships, Graduate Research Assistantships, and Graduate Teaching Assistantships to support the research and teaching responsibilities of the program faculty, contributing departments, and the university.
