Our Program

The Conflict & Dispute Resolution prepares a new generation of practitioners to rethink traditional approaches to conflict.

The Conflict & Dispute Resolution (CRES) is an interdisciplinary master's program housed in the University of Oregon’s School of Law. CRES is ranked fifth in the nation for public universities in this area (ninth overall).

CRES students study dispute resolution theory, develop professional conflict resolution skills, and apply these in real-world contexts through internships and a final graduate project. Students also have the option of pursing concurrent degrees in a variety of related fields including law, business, public administration, nonprofit management, community & regional planning, and more. Additionally, students may obtain a graduate specialization in regional and international conflict, or environmental conflict resolution.

What Our Students Say

  • Through the CRES program, I had the opportunity to understand conflict and its dynamics. My thesis research provided a deeper understanding about what prompted the Liberian civil war and how we can begin a process of national reconciliation and rebuilding.

    S. Aaron Weah-Weah III, Program Director, Naymote-Partners for Democratic Development (Paynesville, Liberia), M.S. Conflict Resolution ‘17
  • The cohort model was invaluable as a tool to understand and analyze group conflict and collaboration. I witness the same structural tendencies and interpersonal behaviors in other group settings, and it has better prepared me for professional roles. 

    Emily Heizer, Director of Conflict Resolution and Credential Advising, St. HOPE Academy, Sacramento, CA, M.S. Conflict Resolution ‘15
  • The ongoing support--with the mentoring, references, and community connections--I received from the CRES program helped me land the position I now hold.

    Elaine Phillips, Regional Programs Director, Alternative Dispute Resolution Office, District Court of Maryland, Annapolis, MD, M.S. Conflict Resolution/Master of Community & Regional Planning ‘12
