Field Study and Internships

MSCM InternshipsA hallmark of the MS in Conflict Management program is the field study students perform during the final semester. This experience, which affords students the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained over the course of the program to a specific conflict environment, prepares them to face the challenges of our complex global environment.

Students are able to choose an area of the field in which to research or perform an internship, based on their unique interests in the field and their professional goals.
