Training in Peacemaking

There are a number of ways that any person can develop skill, knowledge, & experience in work associated with peace-making.  Many Universities are developing study programs in Peace, and there are many co-related degrees that could be earned by peacemakers - programs in International Studies, Economics, Sociology, Religion, and Psychology would have overlapping concerns with peacemaking work.

For persons looking for a unique approach to peacemaking studies where pursuing a Graduate Degree is not possible - there are a few options.

I have commented on my praise for Rotary Peace Fellow programs in the past.  This can be part of an earned Master's Degree - or - a shorter term Professional Certificate from Chulalongkorn University from 3 months of intensive study in Southeast Asia.

I've recently learned of this program, led by SIT (formerly, the School for International Training) and their Graduate Work program possibilities include the SIT Graduate Institute.  Among other things, they provide venues for short term professional training & academic work in peacebuilding and conflict transformation.  Several programs that look promising, and I know one person who has had a great experience.
