Two-year Concentration Semester Track

For students interested in Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Management, this track allows them to expand their knowledge of relevant humanitarian issues, bolstering their skill sets and job prospects upon graduation. 

The concentration semester track is structured to add an additional semester of concentration coursework beyond the year and a half degree requirements for the general Conflict Resolution and Coexistence degree program. This intensive program requires a minimum of 72 credits to be completed in 21 months. This includes an academic year in residence (32 credits) followed by six months of combined fieldwork (12 credits) and final paper (12 credits), then the concentration semester (12 credits). After fulfilling the program requirements, students receive one degree with a concentration in Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Management. This is currently the only concentration offered. 

All students are eligible to choose this track. Students who choose this option must first complete the summer practicum, write their final paper and present their Capstone before starting the concentration semester in the spring of their second year. Students must pay standard course tuition fees for the spring semester.
