The online BA in The History of Conflict will explore the history of conflict and its resolution from ancient civilizations through modern-day, inclusive of theories of war and conflict, military history, and the outlook for conflict.
Graduates with this degree will be prepared to become educators, writers, and researchers, as well as be prepared for graduate studies. Students in the BA program can link to the MA in The History of Conflict, taking graduate courses that apply to both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

These experiences may include formal but non-accredited classroom study, such as corporate training, professional workshops, independent scholarship, and supervised volunteer training.
