The programmes offer a multidisciplinary introduction to the study and practice of reconciliation and peacebuilding, with the work and
experience of St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace informing their design. Drawing on insights from subject areas including psychology, religious studies and the arts, students are encouraged to examine key ideas and theoretical frameworks in the study of reconciliation in a wide variety of different contexts.

Students are supported in identifying and understanding the root causes of conflict, and in critically assessing a range of methods and practices which have the potential to turn violent and destructive conflict into positive and sustainable outcomes. Students are encouraged to reflect on the pivotal relationship between theory and practice and to consider a variety of factors which impact upon the effectiveness of peacebuilding and reconciliation activities.
