M.A. Students Building Careers in Peacebuilding

Author: Renée LaReau

Second-year master’s students in peace studies are in the final stretches of their 6-month internships at Kroc Institute field sites in the Philippines, South Africa, Uganda, and the United States.

For the past five months, 11 students have been working as interns at leading organizations focused on policy research and analysis, community and economic development, interfaith dialogue, violence prevention, and grassroots mediation and organizing.

Students will return to Notre Dame in January for their final semester and a capstone course that integrates classroom learning with the practical realities of "on the ground" peacebuilding.
