Conflict Management Certificate

The 15-hour Certificate in Conflict Management provides students with a core understanding of the principles of conflict management.  This graduate certificate is designed to provide students with a broad perspective on conflict management and is intended to be a set of skills applied directly to a career in progress.  In addition to the first three core courses, a "settings" course is required as part of the certificate so that the student can apply conflict management principles and techniques within a specific professional context.  The final course is chosen by the student as either an internship or an applicable upper-level course.  The certificate can be completed in as little as 6 months and is an excellent add-on to the professional resume.   Courses are delivered as two-weekend blocks or online, and provide a flexible choice for busy schedules.
