Course summary

Overview

The PgDip in Peace and Conflict Studies at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, is rooted in Coventry’s history as a ‘City of Peace and Reconciliation’. This is the Centre’s most established postgraduate course. It provides students from all over the world with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of issues, theories and practices relating to peace and conflict. you will be taught how to apply theory and draw on case studies to aid peacebuilding in complex situations. The programme is designed to enhance the skills and abilities of people seeking to achieve and strengthen peace in their local communities and around the world.

The PgDip is a blended learning course – a mixture of distance and face-to-face study – allowing you the flexibility to integrate your studies with work and personal commitments. We also provide the opportunity to study through our fast-track (APEL*) route which can allow you to gain accreditation for your prior experience and learning, taking into account what you have achieved in your career so far.

Career prospects

The PgDip in Peace and Conflict Studies is currently taught by experts in the broad field of peace and conflict studies and is informed by their research, practice and activism. The programme provides students with a deeper insight into theoretical and practical challenges in contemporary peacebuilding.

The course seeks to create a learning community sharing and debating ideas and challenges with academic staff, alumni and current students during the course and long after it has concluded. The course provides practitioners with opportunities to broaden their professional network and draw on the experience of other practitioner students. We consider this to be useful in the workplace and gaining a formally accredited Postgraduate qualification may enhance career progression. This course equips students who have an interest in peace and conflict with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to work for a broad range of organisations such as international non-government organisations, multi-national government organisations like the United Nations, regional communities such as the European Union or the Economic Community of West African States, faith groups, faith-based organisations, community organisations, the private sector, think tanks and academia.
