sandiego.edu/peace Dear Colleagues
I am the Dean of the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego. At the Kroc School we educate leaders to respond to the demands of the present in order to build a better future. Our academic programs include a Master of Arts in Peace and Justice (MAPJ) for individuals pursuing careers in peacebuilding, human rights, sustainable development and conflict transformation. I invite you to share this exciting opportunity with your friends and colleagues who want to become peacebuilders and changemakers.
The MAPJ offers a curriculum where the border region provides an opportunity to build empathy, learn from different actors and apply theories and newly acquired knowledge. Field-based courses—locally, across the border and around the world—allow for real-world lessons that go beyond the classroom. For example, this spring a group of students will go to Bogotá, Colombia, to learn about the ongoing peace process as it faces new challenges after the results of the Oct. 2 referendum. The Kroc School MAPJ is a program for students who believe in the power of connections and collaborations. They will engage in dialogue with top peace and justice leaders from around the world inside and outside of the classroom. A required internship experience will provide a deeper dive into an area of focus, and greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by individuals and organizations creating sustainable change. Partnerships with organizations such as the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), which oversees key policy dialogue and policy review on social and economic issues, will expose students to timely issues of peace and security and offer them the the opportunity to participate in UN conferences alongside Kroc School staff. From the start, we guide our students toward professional fulfillment and success. Students have continuous career guidance, counseling and workshops. We promote professional networking and connectedness through the Kroc Connect program and a Mentoring Alliance that matches individual students with experienced professionals in San Diego. Please share with friends and others who are interested in innovation for peace and justice in the world. The application deadline is January 15 for full-time and February 15 for part-time enrollment.
Contact Miranda Williamson directly, our Graduate Student Services specialist, for specific questions you may have regarding admissions at (619) 260-7929 or firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, this program is also offered part-time.
Many thanks for spreading the word – the world can hardly wait. Dean Patricia Márquez View Program Brochure
