Are you interested in the connections between peace research and security policy? You want to learn more about strategies for avoiding or reducing violent conflicts and what conclusions politics should draw from this? You have practical experience and want to acquire further knowledge and competencies?

In our one-year master's program, you will receive an overview of the social science foundations of peace research and security policy. In addition, ethical, international law, economic and scientific issues are dealt with. It is about current conflicts in individual regions of the world, concrete aspects of peacekeeping, disarmament and foreign policy.

University graduates of all disciplines can apply. They should have an interest in peace and security issues and, ideally, have already worked in this area. The call for applications for the Master of Peace and Security Studies in Hamburg 2021/2022 is open until March 22, 2021.

A unique feature of the programme is its interdisciplinary focus. This is made possible through close co-operation with other academic institutions not only in Germany, but worldwide. The Institute for Peace and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg is leading this cooperation network.
The study programme is free of charge.
