Master of Arts in Dispute Resolution
The dispute resolution program is an interdisciplinary field, grounded in the fundamental idea that dispute resolution techniques are inherently democratic in giving voice to disputants. The program provides practical and academic experience including a range of dispute resolution activities such as labor and school mediation, commercial arbitration, family counseling, legal negotiation, and international diplomacy.
All students participate in a practicum experience intended to strengthen student knowledge, introduce the students to new forms of dispute resolution and build professional relationships both inside and outside the university.
Graduates of the program serve as scholars and educators, while others occupy positions as communication and creative professionals.
