Situated in the heart of the Middle East, in Israel’s most culturally diverse city, bringing together students from all countries and religions, UHaifa International’s sought-after Master of Arts in Peace & Conflict Management is an authentic human lab for peacebuilding.
Introducing state-of-the-art multidisciplinary theory, practical intervention frameworks, and extra-curriculum fieldwork, this unique program trains students to transform conflict into peace, on both local and global levels.
Professional or aspiring policy makers, diplomats, group facilitators, counsellors and more, can greatly benefit from this hands-on, real-world oriented program.
Our one-year international master’s program is taught in English over three consecutive semesters from October through September. Graduates will be awarded a Master of Arts (MA) in Peace & Conflict Management.
Students who wish to pursue the thesis track must have a minimum average of 90 after their first semester. Requests for the thesis track will be considered individually and are dependent on students’ achievements, their ability to secure a supervisor, and other factors. The thesis will be submitted within one year of completion of their coursework, which may require an extended stay at the university.
