Department of Peace Studies and International Development

Knowledge for peace, justice and sustainability

We are proud pioneers in the fields of peace studies and international development. In 2015 two departments merged - Peace Studies and the Bradford Centre for International Development (BCID). This brought together with their decades-long global reputation and experience in multidisciplinary and applied research, teaching and policy/practitioner engagement. 

Choosing Peace Studies and International Development at Bradford means meeting the world in your classroom. You will study with a cosmopolitan group of staff and students from around the world. You will learn from their experience in the fields of peacebuilding, humanitarian assistance and development.

You will have many opportunities to develop your professionalism and employability as you learn and apply tangible skills directly applicable to careers in politics, international relations, peace and conflict and international development.

Stylized map of the world.
