Menno Simons College coordinates two programs that are fully integrated into the University of Winnipeg curriculum. You can choose a 3-year or 4-year major in either area:
International Development Studies
International Development Studies at MSC is designed to help you analyze the causes of poverty and the processes of economic and social development. Students have the choice of pursuing a three-year, four-year, or Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in IDS.
Conflict Resolution Studies
Through Conflict Resolution Studies at MSC, you will learn about new ways of addressing conflict in various situations - including conflict which occurs at the family, workplace, community, and national levels. Students have the option of pursuing a three-year or four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in CRS.
You can also take courses in international development and conflict resolution as electives for other University of Winnipeg programs.
A practicum is required for a 4-year B.A. in either program above, and is optional for the 3-year B.A.
It is a supervised work experience that relates to your studies. It is valuable vocational training. And it's an excellent platform for integrating knowledge obtained from course work. Practicums can be local or international and count for course credit. More details here.
Degrees granted in Conflict Resolution Studies and International Development Studies are University of Winnipeg degrees, and students register for Menno Simons College courses and majors through the University of Winnipeg.
Menno Simons College courses are also available the Canadian
Mennonite University campus in southwestern
Winnipeg. CMU, a distinctly Christian university, offers majors in
conflict transformation and international development.
