Course Level: Fellowships are available to pursue PhD programme.

Study Subject: Graduates are fully credentialed in one of the six disciplines as well as in peace studies. They are prepared for positions in research and teaching — in anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, theology, or peace studies — and for contributions to peacebuilding practice.

Students apply for admission to one of these distinct yet related programs:

  • PhD in Anthropology & Peace Studies
  • PhD in History & Peace Studies

Living-expense stipends for the 2016-17 academic year are $21,500. Students receiving graduate assistantships are assigned to work either on faculty research projects or to assist faculty with teaching or professional peacebuilding. If students enter with advanced standing and transfer credits, the number of years of support may be less than five.

Funding may also be available, in full or in part, beyond five years when warranted. Additional funding may be available for summer travel to support research, although this is provided on a competitive basis and not available for all students every year.
