Master of Sustainable Peacebuilding (MSP) | College of Nursing. The MSP is designed to cultivate the next generation of change-makers at the personal, local, and global levels. Unpredictability has become the new normal of our time. The Master of Sustainable Peacebuilding program is designed to cultivate the next generation of change- makers. The interacting forces of urbanization, climate change, economic inequity and ideological polarization intertwine to generate complex pressures on the environment, society, and culture. Figuring out where to start requires trans-disciplinary systems-based approaches and new ways of thinking about “solutions” and “fixes.” MSP students learn techniques for grappling with complexity and developing strategies for effective change, while building critical leadership skills in facilitation, strategic planning, and evaluation.

The MSP embraces a cohort-based trans-disciplinary model and students are drawn from diverse academic, socio-cultural and professional backgrounds. Intergroup Dialogue: IUPUI.

Georgetown University: Master of Arts Program in Conflict Resolution - Georgetown College -

Conflict at both intergroup and interpersonal levels is a dominant theme of the human condition in the twenty-first century. Numerous violent international conflicts persist in Afghanistan, Iraq, Colombia, and the Middle East. At the domestic level, tensions and conflicts also extend along divisions based on religion, race, ethnicity, social class, culture, and language. Moreover given the increasing strain on the world's environment, conflict over limited resources such as water, is likely to increase. The need for conflict resolution practitioners and researchers is urgent, and likely to increase in the harsh economic climate ahead. As a major research university steeped in Jesuit traditions and blessed with international reach and talent, Georgetown University is meeting this global and national need by developing additional strengths in conflict resolution and peacebuilding.

The Center for Applied Conflict Management (CACM) was founded in 1971 as Kent State University's original "living memorial" to the students killed on May 4, 1970 when Ohio National Guardsmen killed four and injured nine Kent State University students during a student protest against the United States' war in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.

Following the shootings, a university-wide commission was charged with recommending long-range institutional responses. The commission's consensus recommendation was that KSU should establish a living memorial in the form of a Center to study and to promote peaceful mechanisms of change. Thus the Center for Peaceful Change was established in 1971, later renamed the Center for Applied Conflict Management. The Center's undergraduate degree program in peace and conflict studies was established two years later, in 1973, making it one of the oldest in the country. Denver: conflict resolution institute.

UNC Public Dispute Resolution. NOVA. Programs Graduate Certificate in Advanced Conflict Resolution Practice The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Conflict Resolution Practice offers students the fundamentals of applied conflict resolution and advanced training in the conflict resolution “skill-set.” It is intended to meet the needs of those individuals who seek more expertise in conflict resolution and are mainly interested in becoming practitioners in the field. It may also be appropriate for professionals who have already earned a graduate degree in their professional area, but who would benefit from academic study of applications of conflict analysis & resolution in their current profession.

The Graduate Certificate consists of five courses (15 credits), which include conflict resolution theory and practice skills. Students who decide to continue their studies in conflict resolution may apply these credit hours toward the M.S. or the Ph.D. program in Conflict Analysis and Resolution if accepted to the program.
