During that period a student is required to attend four modules during a two-week teaching session and undertake a research report.

Who Will Benefit From Studying Peace?

The Honours Programme in Peace Studies is suited to students who intend, upon graduation, to enter into one of the following fields of activity:

Peace-building, peace-keeping, and post-conflict reconstruction work with local and international non-governmental and governmental organizations, schools, and local community development organisations.
Research and scholarship in the broad field of peace studies, including war and conflict prevention, non-violent approaches to post-conflict reconstruction and recovery from violence, and institutional and community capacity building.
Pursuit of further post-graduate study in the field.

Admission Requirements

Candidates for admission are required to have at least a bachelor’s degree, and must submit an application as well as a motivation for study. Those without a bachelor’s degree but possessing experience in the field may apply for admission in terms of the College’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy.

Peace building and peace keeping

Our Peace Studies programme aims to equip graduates in the field to approach the challenges of conflict prevention, resolution, peace-building and peace-keeping in a manner that is intellectually rigorous, theoretically well-grounded and empirically richly informed.
