Summary

Develop a critical understanding of conflict and humanitarian crisis in this distance learning course. Gain skills in peacebuilding and humanitarian response.

This course addresses the core global challenges of conflict and humanitarian crisis, with a practical focus on the tools and approaches that can respond to these challenges. You will examine in-depth the complexities involved in resolving conflict and promoting peace. Additionally, you will also explore sustainable policy solutions that address the needs of those displaced by conflict and natural disaster.

Drawing on case studies from the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, you will learn how the practical and policy-related challenges of responding to conflict and humanitarian crisis play out in specific contexts.

**You will leave this course with:**

- in-depth knowledge of humanitarian conflict response, and development policy and practice

- the professional and analytical skills to tackle political, ethical and practical tensions on the ground

- the skills and knowledge to evaluate diverse perspectives and tools for conflict response and humanitarian action across different settings

- an established professional network for continued knowledge-sharing and effective career development

- The course is designed for those who already work in the field of humanitarian and conflict response, and recent graduates who aspire to do so. Graduates of the course will be in a strong position to work, or progress further, in this field.

**Learning and teaching**

The course is delivered in an inspiring format, that combines:

- highly structured and interactive online content

- face-to-face learning and networking at short residentials in Bath (compulsory) and Jordan (optional)

- intensive support from leading Bath academics throughout

**Graduate prospects**

This course provides an excellent background for those wishing to pursue a career in humanitarian, conflict response, or peacebuilding. It is equally relevant to those already working in the humanitarian and conflict fields, seeking to advance their careers with a deeper level of specialist knowledge.

You will be well qualified to work with development or humanitarian NGOs, the United Nations and other inter-governmental organisations, or in conflict or humanitarian advisor roles in government departments such as DFID.
