Course summary

Overview

Our Humanitarian Action and Peacebuilding MA is aimed at practitioners already working in these fields, but also those working in related areas.

We designed and deliver this course jointly with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). This gives you access to resources and support from both institutions online and in the field through UN missions. We also use the knowledge and expertise of the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP).

A flexible and user-friendly online learning environment enables you to learn from your workplace. During the course you will:

  • investigate cutting-edge issues in the field
  • propose innovative tools
  • reflect on current field practices
  • broaden your perceptions
  • develop and refine the hard and soft skills needed to work effectively.

You will have support from a team of academic experts and top-ranked practitioners. And field experts for specific topics.

This course is also relevant for practitioners working in other fields interested in exploring opportunities in conflict transformation.

Career prospects

This course is ideal for a career in the field of humanitarian action, conflict transformation or related fields, such as:

  • civil servants or diplomats in charge of humanitarian affairs
  • academics teaching humanitarian practices
  • journalists seeking a better understanding of humanitarian issues
  • military personnel ready to be deployed in a field of operation where humanitarian actions are taking place.

Students can also exit with PgCert awards.
