Masters degree in Mediation and Conflict Resolution

Learn more about the MS in Mediation and Conflict Resolution and what it can do for your career

"It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won’t go."
-Bertrand Russell

It's a waste of time and life to be angry with family and it's a waste of time and money to be angry with business partners.

Conflict mediation and resolution is the most desirable result of all quarrels and misunderstandings we have with others. Otherwise, we treat those we love with anything but love and we can burn bridges in business forever when emotions get the better of us. However, even though we know the intrinsic truth belonging to these facts, when put in a sticky position, it can be utterly impossible to be rational.

The Masters degree in Mediation and Conflict Resolution prepares students to guide those who are unfortunate enough to be in the midst of a conflict (whether it be between family, businesses, or a community) through their disagreements and to bring people together back to a peaceful, more rational, state.
