This fee-waiver is intended to contribute to the development of a community of conflict resolution practitioners within Malta in line with the Centre’s mission and mandate.
The MA in Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security enables students to:
- carry on a systematic and ongoing study of the nature, origins, and types of conflicts;
- analyse the international relations and security scenarios of the Mediterranean and in particular the nature, types and origins of the conflicts in the region;
- develop the requisite processes and conditions for the productive resolution of conflicts;
- apply the theories, skills, processes and techniques to empirical case-studies that focus on the Mediterranean.
- A recognised degree as deemed relevant by the Board of the Centre for the Study and Practice of Conflict Resolution. Given the multidisciplinary character of conflict resolution, students are expected to hold a first degree obtained with second class honours or equivalent, in any of the following subjects: sociology, anthropology, political science, law, International relations, human rights, development studies, diplomacy, psychology, history, philosophy, religious studies or languages.
- English Language Proficiency. Applicants who have not studied in Malta are required to present an internationally recognised English Language Proficiency Certificate at the required level.
