New Students: Typical Conflict Management Course Schedule

Application deadline for Fall 2014 admission is July 15, 2014.  

Application deadline for Winter 2015 admission is December 15, 2014.

New students are required to attend an orientation, generally held on Thursday evening before the first class begins, from 6-8pm.

Flexibility is valued within the Institute for Conflict Management, and it is understood that balancing work and life schedules can be difficult when planning course loads.   Some students take 18-24 months to complete the Master of Arts in Conflict Management, and others take more time to complete. Below is a typical student's course schedule. Certainly, students with scheduling issues can take fewer courses at a time.
