All Peace and Conflict Studies

One job-related subject that’s covered during a peace and conflict studies course is the theory and practice of humanitarian aid during times of war. This kind of charity work can certainly become a career but is probably not for everyone, even in an administrative role. ​Other possible employers of peace and conflict studies graduates include the State Department, international organizations such as the United Nations, intelligence agencies, and various activism and research organizations.​Much of the coursework in such a degree focuses on conflict management, de-escalation, and negotiation. This can also equip a student for a wide variety of roles not directly related to peace and conflict studies. Some example include corporate communication, policy research, human resources, and arbitration. All of the jobs mentioned have different payscales, but the average graduate earns about $50,500 per annum.
