Masters in Conflict Resolution

Masters in Conflict Resolution

By pursuing a graduate certificate in conflict resolution, you will learn how to solve issues that come up in the workplace, at home and in all kinds of relationships through nonviolent and professional means. Concepts that lead to a deeper understanding of conflict include the study of cultural differences, communication problems, misunderstandings, and anger. As you earn your Masters in Conflict Resolution, you will learn how to mediate between arguing persons and rationally communicate the problem and negotiate a solution. Classes you will take include a course on mediation, negotiation and facilitation, intervention of violent family conflicts, workplace conflict management, intercultural negotiations and communications.

Completing your degree online is possible and takes less than a year to complete. The entirety of Conflict Resolution Master’s Programs is available online and no on-campus work is required. Though internships are not required to complete a program, many universities offering online courses require practical experience in resolving conflicts. Online class lectures, professor’s notes and class assignments can all be completed at a time that is most convenient for you from the comfort of your own home. As long as you have Adobe Reader, a word processing program, a reliable internet connection and a personal computer, you are invited to participate in online courses from an accredited university.

With your graduate certificate in hand, you can find careers in mediation, conciliation, and arbitration working at schools, hospitals, jails or businesses. In 2008, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for all of these positions was a little less than $53,000. If you want to further your education even more before you enter the work field, doctoral degree programs are available online as well.
