The Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) Master of Arts program encompasses the analysis and resolution of social conflicts; peace research examining the structural roots of social conflicts, divisions and social inequalities; and strategies for building community and promoting social justice. This is a joint program supervised by the Joint Discipline committee consisting of faculty members from the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg.

The PACS program is rigorous as the significance of research and intervention for conflict resolution, peacebuilding and creating a culture of human rights demands a high standard of commitment, scholarship and professionalism.
