Ph.D. Placements

Because they are dual degree in a traditional discipline and peace studies, our graduates are equipped for academic jobs in a wide range of areas. Our goal is that graduates will be first-rate candidates in their home discipline, and also bring an additional special set of transdisciplinary research and teaching themes in peace, justice and human rights that are much in demand.  

Our program also emphasizes that 21st century scholarship and teaching may be done by scholar-practitioners. Thus, graduates of our program are comfortable working for international agencies, pursuing research fellowships, and moving in and out of the Academy as their career unfolds.
