Peace, Conflict and Justice Specialist (Arts Program) - ASSPE1228

Enrolment Requirements

This is a limited enrollment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Admission is determined by a range of criteria, including at the initial stage a student's academic background, a statement of interest in the program, and as a later stage of the process, a personal interview on invitation of the Program Director. In the past, enrollment in Peace, Conflict and Justice has proven to be extremely competitive across all these dimensions, and an applicant's success in any one of these dimensions does not necessarily guarantee admission to the program in any given year.
