Conflict & Resolution Studies


The Conflict and Resolution Studies Program offers both a Minor and a Concentration which provide interdisciplinary and international perspectives on the causes of conflict and the possibilities of resolution. Courses in the program offer theoretical insights into the causes of conflict-some positive and creative but far too many tragically destructive. The program courses embrace the study of interpersonal, intergroup, and societal conflicts in different cultures across the world. Exploration of resolution strategies, ethical and social justice issues, and leadership qualities are features of the program. The minor provides interested students with the opportunity to explore the area of Conflict and Resolution in greater depth than the concentration.
