Coexistence and Conflict mission at Brandeis University is to enhance the capabilities of students to promote coexistence through their work in governmental and non-governmental institutions and provide them with the professional skills to design and implement successful interventions that enable groups, nations and regions to embrace coexistence values.
Students from around the world join them to master the fundamentals of peacebuilding and conflict resolution. Courses, fieldwork and events prepare them for a lifelong career to promote coexistence values as responsible leaders and facilitators in conflict transformation.
Faculty are leading experts in conflict theory and intervention. As researchers and practitioners, they provide students with a unique blend of cutting-edge knowledge and know-how that our graduates apply to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflicts.
Students spend three months in the field integrated in peacebuilding organizations (NGO, government or international agency) or conducting independent research. Upon their return to Boston, they share their findings at a capstone with faculty, fellow students, alumni and partners.
