Unique program

  • International structure: Students spend one year in Germany and one year in Colombia. The binational design deepens the students’ intercultural skills and language proficiency and enables mutual exchange of experiences, ideas and approaches.
  • Double degree: Following successful completion of the CMP degree program, students are awarded a Masters’ degree of the KU as well as a Magíster en Conflicto, Memoria y Paz of the Universidad del Rosario (UR).
  • Innovative perspective: The memory component fosters a multidimensional and context-sensitive understanding of peace and conflict.
  • Research: Profound research skills are acquired in relevant modules worth 40 ECTS credits. The fact that the degree program is partly integrated into UR’s interdisciplinary research unit JANUS as well as into KU’s Center for Latin American Studies (ZILAS) ensures that students are always up to date regarding current developments in the field of research.
  • Practical approach: Students are prepared for the professional environment by a compulsory internship as well as practice-oriented courses (i.a. simulations and representatives of practical fields).
  • Flexibility: During the course of study, students have the opportunity to develop their own subject-specific profile in the core modules. Students are free to choose from the range of elective compulsory modules from both universities.
  • Professional support: Course participants benefit from individual advice tailored to the needs of the students’ course of studies as well as from numerous intercultural networking and support possibilities which render the degree program both in Germany and at the partner university a personal and professional gain.
