The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies is intended for students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.
The core courses provide bridges from existing disciplinary backgrounds into the inter-disciplinary field of peace and conflict studies, development and peacebuilding.
We are currently in process of curriculum review with the express intention of ensuring all papers reflect more substantively and sincerely our commitment to bicultural development in the context of Aotearoa New Zealand, and to successfully advancing indigenous academic aspirations in all our teaching activities.

- PEAC 501 Theories of Peace and Conflict
- PEAC 502 Conflict Analysis and Conflict Resolution Theory
- PEAC 503 Conflict Resolution Practice
- PEAC 504 Development and Peacebuilding
