Image of Student

Do you work, or are you interested in working in the field of peace and conflict?

Are you involved in qualitative research or survey work, analyzing data and writing reports as part of your work?

Would you like to learn from leading academics and researchers based in INCORE (International Conflict Research Institute) which is associated to the United Nations University?

Would you like to study for a qualification at home instead of coming into the university each week?

If the answer is ‘yes’ then taking our short course in Researching Peace and Conflict in Divided Societies could be one of the best career enhancing moves that you will ever make.

Here is what we can offer you:

  • An introduction to some of the key concepts, ideas and debates in the field of peace and conflict research.
  • An introduction to the theoretical understandings of the course, dynamics and resolution of societal conflict.
  • An introduction to the key methodological and ethical issues involved in carrying out research in divided societies.
  • Credit points from this short course can be used towards our PGC/PGD/MSc Social Research Skills with Specialisms.
  • All your learning and teaching takes place via your computer at home or at work provided you have internet access.
  • Classes are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The course runs for 12 weeks and enrolment is now underway for the next available class beginning at the end of January 2016.
  • A module coordinator to help you when you have queries.
  • A technical help desk.

We have developed this distance learning ‘short course’ because we understand that you have to fit your study
around your life and not vice versa. All of your lectures, class discussions and projects take place online so you
never have to worry about lecture times or travelling to attend classes.
