The Ph.D. in International Conflict Management (INCM) at Kennesaw State University (KSU) currently has students from around the world, creating a dynamic, yet intimate, educational environment. INCM is a field that currently has few opportunities for advanced training. This Ph.D. program offers several key elements unavailable in most other doctoral programs in this field to top-quality, advanced graduate students. Each doctoral student, after completing the core courses, is given the flexibility to focus their studies in their desired area. The ability to drive their curriculum in the direction of their dissertation and region allows them to further their expertise in their academic discipline.
