Post-Conflict State ReconstructionThe growing number of conflicts around the world reflect significant socio-economic and institutional challenges, and have increased the need for skilled professionals trained in the field of post-conflict reconstruction. In response, the School of Diplomacy and International Relations recently announced the launch of a new graduate certificate program in Post-Conflict State Reconstruction and Sustainability. The certificate program is the first of its kind among colleges and universities affiliated with the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) in the New York metropolitan area.

The School's Dean, Andrea Bartoli, anticipates that the new program will have a broad impact. "I am pleased," Bartoli said, "that the School of Diplomacy will be contributing to the development of skilled, reflective professionals who will be in the position to help advance the healing process in countries that are struggling to resolve tensions and rebuild sound and stable societies. Students and practitioners who complete the rigorous certificate program will be well prepared to meet the demands of this critically important field."

The Graduate Certificate in Post-Conflict State Reconstruction and Sustainability is designed for both the matriculated Diplomacy graduate student, as well as the working professional who seeks to explore a new career or further their skills in international relations without committing to a Master's degree. Current students pursuing the M.A. in Diplomacy and International Relations may add the certificate as an additional credential. Working professionals and those who hold a Bachelor’s degree may apply directly to the certificate program as non- matriculated graduate level students. The 15-credit program curriculum can be completed in two semesters. Classes begin in Fall 2014 and will be held once a week in the evening to accommodate commuters and working professionals

The Post Conflict Reconstruction and Sustainability Graduate Certificate includes coursework on: Peacemaking and Peacekeeping; Conflict and Conflict Resolution in Plural Societies; Justice, Truth and Reconciliation in Post- Conflict Societies; Institutions of Post - Conflict Governance; and Civil Conflict and Development. This coursework may be applied toward an M.A. in Diplomacy and International Relations provided the student meets the School’s graduate admissions requirements.
