About

The MA Reconciliation programme at The University of Winchester draws on insights from a range of academic disciplines,case studies and cultural, spiritual and faith traditions from around the world.

Overview

The MA Reconciliation programme at The University of Winchester gives you a multidisciplinary introduction to the study and practice of reconciliation and peacebuilding, with the work and experience of St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace informing their design.

Drawing on insights from subject areas including psychology, religious studies and the arts, you examine key ideas and theoretical frameworks in the study of reconciliation in a wide variety of different contexts. We discuss and reflect on the pivotal relationship between theory and practice and to consider a variety of factors which impact upon the effectiveness of peacebuilding and reconciliation activities. You also have the opportunity to become involved with peacebuilding projects and organisations throughout the duration of the programme.

Study core modules including Foundation of Reconciliation and Peacebuilding, Theories and Dynamics of Reconciliation, and Practical Bridge Building. Supplement these with options including Multi-faith Cooperation on Peacebuilding, Dialogue and Disagreement, and The Relationship between Theory and Practice. You also complete a final assessment, for which you have the option of writing a dissertation of 15,000 to 20,000 words; undertaking a consultancy placement with an organisation working in the field; or participating in and reflecting on a practical peacebuilding project.
