Academic Affairs


Academic programmes were introduced into the KAIPTC in 2011 and thereby made the Centre the first African peacekeeping training school to run postgraduate courses. Since that time, the Centre has opened its doors to students of diverse backgrounds, from 26 countries dotted on four continents and share a common goal of making Africa and the entire world, safer, harmonious and developmentally sustainable for their generation and those to come. Students are equipped with the academic foundation, analytical tools and practical skills to work towards conflict prevention, peacemaking, peacekeeping, peacebuilding and reconstruction within broadly inclusive and participatory environments.

Potential candidates have a choice of a growing list of programmes including:

    Certificate in Gender, Peace and Security
    Master of Arts in Gender, Peace and Security
    Master of Arts in Conflict, Peace and Security
    Master of Arts in Conflict, Peace and Security (Executive Weekend)
    PhD in International Conflict Management

The KAIPTC’s is under the mentorship of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) with respect to its tertiary level programmes.

Lecturers are drawn from our experienced and widely published internal and adjunct faculty. The quality and further development of the programmes is advised by an Academic Board and coordinated by an Academic Administrative Committee.
