About

The english Master's programme Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg attaches great importance to a theoretically well-founded academic education.

Overview

At the same time, the practical relevance of these concepts and methods is discussed and demonstrated in the seminars. Specific conflicts and cases are analysed within the courses offered and practical skills of conflict management are trained within special practice modules. 

The Master's programme Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg courses focus on human rights issues, conflict analyses and normative issues of a global peace order. The PACS programme offers the students a broad education in theories and methods of peace and conflict study and enables them to develop the strong analytical and practical skills.
