The University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies invites applications to its Ph.D. Program in Peace Studies. Peace studies is an interdisciplinary field that draws on political science, history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, theology, law, and other disciplines to address some of the world’s greatest challenges and to shape the future of humanity and the planet. The Kroc Institute is a leading center for peace research and teaching.
Students apply for admission to one of these distinct yet related programs:
- Ph.D. in Anthropology & Peace Studies
- Ph.D. in History & Peace Studies
- Ph.D. in Political Science & Peace Studies
- Ph.D. in Psychology & Peace Studies
- Ph.D. in Sociology & Peace Studies
- Ph.D. in Theology & Peace Studies
The Kroc Institute provides Ph.D. students full financial support in the form of fellowships, graduate assistantships, and tuition scholarships, plus a stipend for living expenses for five years. Students are trained in the research methodologies associated with one of the six disciplines and immersed in the questions and findings of interdisciplinary peace research.
Graduates are fully credentialed in one of the six disciplines as well as in peace studies. They are prepared for positions in research and teaching — in anthropology, history, political science, psychology, sociology, theology, or peace studies — and for contributions to peacebuilding practice.
The application deadline is December 15, 2016.
