MSc Conflict Analysis and Resolution


This dual degree program combines the faculties of two educational institutions: George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, the oldest and largest programme of graduate conflict studies in the United States, and the University of Malta’s Centre for the Study and Practice of Conflict Resolution, a young and dynamic academic centre which focuses on conflict resolution from thematic, regional and practical perspectives. The teaching faculty will be provided by S-CAR and CSPCR who will share teaching responsibilities in this program.

The main objective of this program is to provide students with an array of theoretical, thematic and practical understandings and skills that will enable them to deal effectively with conflicts at the micro and macro levels. It also emphasises the Mediterranean context as an area where this knowledge and these skills are particularly useful. 

Students who successfully complete this collaborative postgraduate programme earn two Masters degrees:

MS Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University and an MA Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security from the University of Malta.

Course delivery starts with each new academic year in late September. The course duration extends over twelve months to September of the following calendar year. It is divided into three semesters, with the first two semesters devoted to the taught component of the course while the final third semester is dedicated to independent student research.

The tuition fee for this dual programme is 14,500 Euro. 

Prospective students may apply online at any time as applications are received on a rolling basis. The course general admission requirements are (i) a recognised bachelor's degree in a relevant subject area, at second class or better, (ii) certified English language proficiency, and (iii) letters of recommendation.
