About

Many people want to change the world. But drive alone is not enough. In the Peace and Justice program at University of San Diego, we merge theory and practice to give you conceptual insight and hands-on training so that passion for peace and justice transforms into visible change.

Overview

Our Master of Arts in Peace and Justice (MAPJ) at University of San Diego prepares students from diverse backgrounds for careers ranging from conflict resolution and mediation to human rights, social entrepreneurship to education, development to advocacy. MAPJ students have undergraduate degrees in diverse fields such as political science, international relations, human rights, psychology, the arts or business administration.

We're looking for creative problem solvers and leaders who, with the right education and guidance, will advance peace and justice wherever they choose to work. Come join us.

The Outcome

People who pursue a MAPJ share a common interest in peace and social justice. But they come to us at different points in their lives and from different places. Some have just finished their undergraduate education. Others are seasoned professionals who want to further their ability to effect change in or beyond their field of expertise. Whatever the path, you'll graduate with a toolkit for promoting peace, an expanded mindset for overcoming injustice, and the knowledge and skills for making effective change.
