Global Conflict and Human Security (M.S.)

A new Master of Science in Global Conflict and Human Security has been approved for Academic Catalog year 2021/2022.

The non-thesis MS degree in Global Conflict & Human Security is a ten course, thirty-credit program that can be completed in one year of full-time participation.

The United Nations delineates seven issues related to human welfare that fall under its human security framework: economic security, food security, health security, environmental security, personal security, community security, and political security. Violent conflict threatens all of these.

This unique program reflects global discussions about a humanitarian-development-peace nexus as a platform for assisting people in conflict-affected societies. You will learn to design development programs that employ a holistic approach to provide humanitarian relief and build sustainable institutions and durable peace.

You will sharpen your critical thinking skills, learn techniques for addressing threats to human security and hone your ability to link theory to practice through project-based courses taught by industry leaders. You will acquire the skills to solve complex problems and improve the wellbeing of individuals in countries affected by state fragility, humanitarian crises and conflict.

Courses will be listed in the 2021/2022 Academic Catalog.
