Field Study

MSCM InternshipsA hallmark of the M.S. in Conflict Management program is the field study that students perform in their final semester of the program. This experience affords students the opportunity to apply their skills and their knowledge to a specific chosen conflict or peace environment. The field study prepares them to face the complex challenges of our world. Students choose an area of the field to either (a) research, (b) intern, or (c) develop and deliver a curriculum or training.
