Program Description:

The Master of Arts Program in Peacemaking and Conflict Studies integrates biblical perspectives with historical and contemporary perspectives of conflict and peacemaking.The focus on peacemaking assumes that all conflicts can be managed to maximize opportunities and minimize dangers. The focus on peacemaking in the sense of the biblical Shalom calls for the uniting of truth, justice and righteousness with respect, civility and love (agape) in a movement toward wholeness. The restoration of wholeness is the ultimate goal of peacemaking. This theme runs as a thread throughout the program.The program is very practical, giving students an opportunity to put into active practice what they are studying.
