The MPhil in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation, based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, is a creative and innovative course designed to suit the needs both of specialists already working in the field, and those new to these areas of study.

Modules offered include: weekly classes taught at the Irish School of Ecumenics, Belfast, on the theory and practice of conflict resolution in Ireland and around the world; a week-long residential course at the Corrymeela Centre for Reconciliation on the north Antrim coast taught by experts from our partner organisation, Beyond Walls; an intensive mediation skills training module; and a placement with a community organisation. Students may also take modules taught at ISE in Dublin. As such, the course is a hybrid mix between the theoretical and practical that offers a dynamic learning experience beyond the classroom setting.

Offering an inter-disciplinary approach to the challenges of political and social reconciliation in the aftermath of armed conflict, this MPhil combines high-quality academic education with practical skills and on-the-ground learning. Graduates will be equipped for work with local and international organisations, and gain transferable skills for a wide variety of careers, including mediation, diplomacy, policy, advocacy, journalism, teaching, and ministry, as well as PhD research.

Northern Ireland faces many social and political challenges as it emerges from decades of violence. Yet Belfast is a vibrant city, undergoing an exciting transformation. The city provides a unique backdrop to the MPhil, allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges and opportunities of conflict transformation.
