Master of Conflict Resolution
In Conflict resolution masters programs, students learn how to analyze conflict and how to uncover the underpinnings of conflict situations. They gain skills to defuse and prevent conflict situations that arise among individuals, groups, and countries.
In this Idealist Grad School Podcast series, Amy Potthast chats with admissions staff from two conflict resolution grad programs:
- Part one is an overview of the degree and careers.
- Part Two is on course work, field work, and certificates.
- Part Three is on admissions and financial aid advice.
- Read the transcript for all three shows here.
