COURSE OVERVIEW
This dual degree program combines the faculties of two renowned educational institutions: George Mason’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, the oldest and largest programme of graduate conflict studies in the United States, and the University of Malta’s Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies, which has been offering advanced degrees in diplomacy and building bridges between Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East for the past twenty years. ICAR and MEDAC will share teaching responsibilities in this program.

Students who successfully complete this collaborative postgraduate programme earn two Masters degrees: MSc Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University and an MA Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security from the University of Malta.

The programme aims to provide students with an array of theoretical and practical tools that will enable them to:

(1) Carry on a systematic and ongoing study of the nature, origins, and types of conflicts,

(2) Analyze the international relations and security scenarios of the Mediterranean and in particular the nature, types and origins of the conflicts in the region,

(3)Develop the requisite processes and conditions for the productive resolution of conflicts,

(4) Apply the theories, skills, processes and techniques to empirical case-studies that will focus on the Mediterranean.
