Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Acquire advanced abilities in critically evaluating peacebuilding and reconciliation theories and concepts and applying them to practice world-wide.

The Reconciliation programmes at Winchester draw on insights from a range of academic disciplines, case studies, and cultural and faith traditions from around the world. They give you a multidisciplinary introduction to the study and practice of reconciliation and peacebuilding, with the work and experience of St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace informing their design.

Drawing on insights from subject areas including psychology, religious studies and the arts, you examine key ideas and theoretical frameworks in the study of reconciliation in a wide variety of different contexts. We discuss and reflect on the pivotal relationship between theory and practice and to consider a variety of factors which impact upon the effectiveness of peacebuilding and reconciliation activities. You also have the opportunity to become involved with peacebuilding projects and organisations throughout the duration of the programme.

The supportive learning environment stems from the teaching staff who are all fully committed to providing the best learning opportunities for all students. We have a range of ways we support the learning experience of our students including one-to-one online tuition, tutorial groups and inclusive teaching practices.

We have a vibrant virtual community that includes students from all over the world. We help our students get to know each other through relationship building exercises in the beginning of the course as well as regular pair and group work and tutorial group meetings throughout the year.
