Global Conflict Studies, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
University rank #601 (WUR) , FL,
The Global Conflict Studies degree prepares graduates to be global influences in conflict resolution. Graduates can make a difference while working for private defense industries, governments, intelligence communities, international aid agencies, and non-profit groups.


The Bachelor of Science in Global Conflict Studies is a historical study of world conflicts and an in-depth review of conflict management policies and processes. Learning from expert faculty and an outcome-based curriculum, students are able to complete the Bachelor of Science in Global Conflict Studies as well as Homeland Security in four years, adding depth to the educational experiences. Global Conflict Studies only enhances a student’s success in graduate degrees such as history, political science, economics, human resiliency, or conflict resolution.

Highly credentialed faculty in the Security Studies & International Affairs Department have years of industry experience and are experts in the study of foreign policy, genocide, history, international relations/politics, and security and intelligence. They focus on student success through helpful advising, guidance in writing projects, and support in seeking internships that give students hands-on experience.

With class sizes much smaller than a traditional university, classroom instruction is enhanced with more complex and open discussions.

Combined with faculty knowledge, the curriculum has its foundation in outcome-based learning. This means students are taught to understand the history of conflict and are then given opportunities to put their knowledge into practice through internships and projects presented to organizations. Students gain critical thinking and solution planning skills that this industry demands.

After learning through related minor courses of study, internships, study-abroad opportunities, and a final capstone experience, graduates are set to serve as conflict specialists, Foreign Service officers, or intelligence officers.
