Graduates of the Sustainable Peacebuilding program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee are thus versed in systems thinking and the scientific approaches to dealing with complexity, which enables them to see the links among various environment and development issues. Through holistic, interdisciplinary, community-led processes, MSP students learn to understand and navigate pressing global problems, such as climate change, poverty, and health disparities.
At the same time, MSP students build critical leadership skills in facilitation, strategic planning, and evaluation. These skills can be applied across diverse employment sectors, such as population and community health, natural resources stewardship, conflict transformation, global security, education and nonprofit management.
The MSP embraces a cohort-based trans-disciplinary model and students are drawn from diverse academic, socio-cultural and professional backgrounds. Dialogue and relationship-building among students is central to the MSP learning philosophy.
Careers in Peacebuilding
MSP graduates pursue careers in a variety of sectors, providing a holistic or complex lens to projects and programs. MSP alumni are currently working in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, with a small subset pursuing PhD’s.
