Joint Masters in Peace and Conflict Studies

This is a Joint Masters Program offered by the University of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba.

The Joint M.A. Program in Peace and Conflict Studies (JMP-PACS) encompasses the analysis and resolution of social conflicts - peace research that examines the structural roots of social conflicts, divisions, and social inequalities and strategies for building community and promoting social justice. The Program is intended to be rigorous in developing research and intervention skills for resolving conflicts, peace-building, and creating a sustainable culture of human rights, requiring a high standard of commitment, scholarship, and professional competence.

The Joint M.A. Program is supervised by the Joint Discipline Committee (JDC) consisting of members of the faculty of the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg. The program is governed by the general procedures and regulations devised by the two universities for Joint Master's Programs.

Courses and thesis direction are offered at both institutions, and students completing the program may elect to receive their parchment from either university. Students may choose between a comprehensive exam option or a thesis option (see Program Requirements, below).
