Course Summary

The MSc will provide you with advanced knowledge of the complex and specialised areas of peacebuilding, among it conflict analysis, conflict prevention, conflict resolution and conflict transformation, community driven reconstruction, peace processes within the context of contemporary conflicts and in the context of broader international (humanitarian) interventions. Integrated into the MSc structure are opportunities to develop operational and vocational skills for example in negotiations, conflict mediation, conflict sensitive programme design and programme management, or urban peacebuilding. You are provided with theoretical and empirical knowledge and with practical skills that are helpful for current and future employment opportunities. The courses are thus attractive to both graduates and mid-career practitioners. Whilst the academic and applied focus of the MSc comes through a peace and conflict studies analytic lens, course material will also draw from traditional strategic/security and development studies, enabling cross fertilisation between different perspectives. It allows the exploration of unique and new paradigms and practices in the fields of conflict, peace, security, defence, diplomacy, development and humanitarian intervention.

Course Learning and Teaching

At the beginning of the academic year, as well as the general induction programme offered by the School and the University, Durham Global Security Institute (DGSi) students are invited to a programme specific induction. This induction provides an overview of the course an opportunity to meet members of the team and an opportunity to discuss optional module e 180 credits one-year MSc degree course is divided into five core and three optional modules of 15 credits each. You also have to submit a dissertation (60 credits) of not more than15,000 words. Practitioners have the option of writing an in-depth policy document as their dissertation.

The modules are mainly delivered through weekly 2-hour sessions which take the form of a one hour lecture and a one hour tutorial. The form in which seminars are conducted can differ from one module to another. Typically modules would have elements of lectures, discussions, and presentations from students—the extent of each of these components would differ from one module to another. The optional modules of the course are either delivered over two full days, through a mixture of lectures, Q&A sessions, seminar discussions, and role plays or over a single term in 2-hour seminar sessions. There is also the opportunity to participate in a study visit which provides an opportunity to investigate issues ‘in the field’ concerned with conflict prevention, conflict resolution, state and peace-building. Of particular interest is the theory-practice linkage.

You can also meet your module coordinators or course coordinator during weekly contact hours or by making an appointment. When you are working on your dissertation during the latter half of the year, you are required to attend two 4-hour workshops. In addition, you have the opportunity to meet your assigned supervisor for an average of 6 meetings. You will also have access to the MSc Programme Director and the School’s Director of Taught Postgraduate Studies whenever there is a need.

The School hosts events throughout the year which all postgraduate students are invited to attend. You are also fully integrated into the Durham Global Security Institute which also hosts guest lectures and seminars throughout the year. These events provide opportunities to engage with, and debate, the most important issues in current political and international studies, and in conflict, peace and security studies. Towards the end of the course students can contact the Careers and Enterprise Centre of the University to get advice on available job prospects and assistance on applying for these.
