The Peace and Development Work programme from Linnaeus University is for students who are looking for a specialisation in issues linked to peace, development and international development co-operation.
We focus on current research concerning development as well as the practical work carried out by international institutions, non-governmental organisations and social movements.
In the program we also discuss communication issues and how they can influence international development.
The objective of the programme is to create possibilities for future employment within e.g., civil society and international organisations that deal with Peace and development issues. During your study you have the possibility to work together with an organisation or to conduct a field study in a developing country. Students develop both analytical capabilities and practical skills which are necessary for work in the complex reality of international development.
