Graduate Certificate in Conflict Management

The Certificate in Conflict Management is a 15 credit hour (5 course) track of study. It 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 six 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.
