The department is proud to host one of only seven Rotary International-sponsored academic centres for the study of peace and conflict. Every year we offer 10 fully-funded Masters places in a highly competitive selection process.
The Department of Peace Studies and International Development engages with schools throughout the year, through stimulating online webinars and interactive in-school workshops led by academic staff.
We also host PeaceJam, a global peace education headed by 14 Nobel Peace Prize winners that encourages young people to become active citizens and change-makers. We train our students as ‘near-peers’ to support young people in schools and youth settings in fun events and dialogue sessions. With around 50 different nationalities among our students, we can bring a truly multi-national element to your educational activity.
If you would like to discuss how we can support your school or college, please get in touch by emailing Dr Fiona Macaulay.
Our students are involved in the local community in lots of ways through their Peace Society. For example, they support refugee groups, carry out litter-picks and sustainability projects around the university, and mentor young people in schools and youth groups through the PeaceJam project.
If you would like to discuss how our students can work with your community group, please get in touch by emailing Dr Fiona Macaulay.
