Overview

The creation of the Ohio University's Department of Homeland Security, new emphases on improved intelligence analysis and risk assessments, border control, immigration, heightened proliferation threats around the globe, increased attention and hiring in the areas of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency, as well as reconstruction and development culminate in demand for students well trained in war and peace studies. 

The job market is competitive and every career demands a substantive understanding of global dynamics today. In our program, we introduce our students to the fields of peace and security studies through one-on-one advising, intensive language training and education abroad.  The students also participate in the myriad events and workshops related to dynamics of conflict and cooperation, network with experts and activists, work closely with our faculty and present their research in national conferences. 

Opportunities Upon Graduation

Global Studies - War and Peace graduates and certificate students have earned competitive internships and careers at the U.S. Department of State (in both Washington, D.C. and at U.S. embassies abroad), congressional offices, U.S. Military, the Peace Corps, and non-governmental organizations like Amnesty International and The Carter Center.  Alumni have also pursued graduate studies at prestigious institutions such as the London School of Economics and the Institut d'études Politiques de Paris.
