Postgraduate Diploma in Peace and Conflict Studies
The Postgraduate Diploma in Peace and Conflict Studies (PGDipArts) is an inter-disciplinary programme providing advanced qualifications in peace and conflict studies, development and peacebuilding.
It focuses on:
- the sources of social and political violence and war at local, national and international levels
- how these might be prevented, managed and transformed in more peaceful directions.
The course addresses the challenges of maintaining a peaceful multicultural Aotearoa New Zealand. These challenges are discussed in the context of New Zealand's place in the South West Pacific and South East and East Asian regions.
The Centre is dedicated to combining theory, research and practice. Students going through the programme can choose to specialise in courses that lead either to practitioner and or research roles.
Taught 400-level papers with either a research dissertation (PEAC 490) or a practicum and project (PEAC 480) make up the programme. Please note, for 2013 enrolments, students enrolling in PEAC 480 should contact the Centre for further details about course structure.
