The study of conflict is a study of ourselves and our relation to others at interpersonal, group, and societal levels. The conflict studies minor and certificate programs offer an interdisciplinary perspective on the theory and practice of conflict analysis and response in various settings. Students will be challenged to understand the nature and dynamics of conflict, to address the natural tensions between concerns for justice and concerns for peace, and to develop an appreciation for the challenges of constructive conflict resolution.The conflict studies minor or certificate can help you:
More deeply understand the nature of conflict in an increasingly diverse world
Refine your negotiation skills
More appropriately intervene in conflicts
The program offers a blend of theory and practice with significant time devoted to application. You will study with graduate students from Hamline University’s programs in education, public administration, nonprofit management, general management, and law.
