Master of Arts in Tolerance Studies and Global Peace

Ubiquity is proud to be partnering with the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace to offer this MA degree to learners who wish to develop specific competencies related to international peacekeeping efforts.

Higher education, one of the main pillars of Tolerance and Peace, should continuously be transformed through the development of quality programs, especially at the postgraduate levels. These programs can meet society’s needs from economic, cultural, and community engagement perspectives.

Learning and research about Tolerance, as a new discipline in higher education, has become vital to nurturing and equipping graduates with innovative knowledge and skills, and to meeting the community’s needs for living together in harmony and stability. Without tolerance, peace of societies cannot be maintained, acceptance of and solidarity with each other cannot be cultivated.

Higher education has a key role to play in preparing changemakers, leaders, entrepreneurs, critical thinkers, and decision-makers, ready to respond to the many challenges confronting today’s multi-cultural societies, including distrust, violence, terrorism, aggressive nationalism, racism, exclusion, marginalization and discrimination.
