NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is now accepting applications for the Ph.D. in International Conflict Management. Given the demand for practitioners and decision makers in the approaches to and understanding of global interconnections in the 21st century, this degree will serve a vital need for developing additional academic scholars/teachers to educate the coming generations and for training doctoral-level practitioners to work in critical international conflict fields. The Ph.D. in International Conflict Management at Kennesaw State University is one of only a handful of similar programs available in the world. Classes will begin in the Fall 2010 semester.
Students entering the program will receive broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities that draw on many social sciences and humanities disciplines. Graduates will be able to address problems from a sophisticated knowledge base of substantive and methodological approaches. The core will prepare them in key global competencies including (1) ethical foundations of global conflict, (2) cross-cultural analysis, (3) international relations, and (4) international negotiations. Methodological preparation will be rigorous, including courses in quantitative and qualitative methods, research design, and international program and policy analysis and evaluation. The Ph.D. program will also require its graduates to obtain significant international experience, written and oral language competency equivalent to that of U.S. Foreign Service officers in a language other than English, and teaching experience.
