Programme description

MA Peace and Conflict studies is delivered by the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations. It is the centre’s flagship programme building on the legacy of Coventry as a city for peace and reconciliation.

You will not only learn about the value of peace and conflict studies but will also be inspired by the city’s reputation and legacy.

Key Modules

Further to this, the course ultimately seeks to create a learning community, where ideas can be interchanged and debated amongst academic staff, alumni, and current students, lasting well beyond the timespan of the academic programme itself.

If you are already a practitioner, you will have the opportunity to broaden your professional network, which is very likely to be useful to you in the workplace, whilst also gaining a formal accredited postgraduate qualification, which may be required for further progression in your career. If you are an individual with an interest in peace and conflict, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter into jobs within a broad spectrum of organisations, including: international non-government organisations, multi-national government organisations like the United Nations, regional communities such as the European Union or the Economic Community of West African States, faith group organisations, community organisations, the private sector, think tanks, and indeed also academia.

Module & Subject

At MA Stage, you will undertake a dissertation in an area of study which you would like to explore in more depth, with support from a supervisor.

Entry Requirements

Applicants should hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above (or equivalent international grade/qualification), from a recognised University, preferably in a social science subject (e.g. Peace and Conflict Studies, International Relations, Security Studies, Politics, Development Studies).

Applications from those who do not hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above but can demonstrate at least three years’ work experience; in a relevant field will also be considered. Here a careful evaluation of the applicant’s capacity to complete the programme successfully, including assessment, where appropriate, through an admissions interview and review of a writing sample will take place.

For non-UK applicants, the entry requirement is English language proficiency at IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. Where applicants do not hold up-to-date IELTS certification, we will look at whether an applicant has previously studied and successfully completed a Higher Education qualification in English. Where an applicant does not hold such a qualification entry will be at the discretion of the course director and subject to a review of documentation and an interview.

Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning

 

To be eligible for AP(E)L an applicant must have a minimum of five (5) years evidenced working experience in a relevant field to Peace and Conflict Studies and be operating in a relevant role at the level of mid-management or above at the time of application, or have operated within a relevant role at the level of mid-management or above within 12 months of the time of application. An eligible applicant seeking AP(E)L will be assessed by a portfolio and admissions interview, alongside their capacity to complete the programme successfully.
