Summer peace and conflict resolution

The classes were well organized and comprehensive. I left the program feeling like I had a good understanding of the conflict situations that we had studied and how they had been or might be solved. The professors were very knowledgeable in the topics they were teaching, not only from doing research but also real life experiences that they drew upon. They mixed personal stories into their lectures to give us a more realistic picture of what they were describing.

The organized outings were well planned and interesting, as well as relevant to our studies. I felt that I got the opportunity to see several very important locations in each country that we visited.

I definitely came back to the US with a broader understanding of the Northern Ireland conflict and the situation in the Middle East, and as a result I have more nuanced views on current events.
