Online Graduate Certificate in Applied Conflict Studies

(No longer enrolling new students)

Life is complicated. We may find ourselves facing conflict at levels for which we need professionals with dispute resolution and facilitation skills that can assist with communication obstacles.

Champlain’s online graduate certificate in Applied Conflict Studies is designed for people interested in coursework in this field who may not have the time or desire to earn a master’s degree. You may be a lawyer who wants to offer mediation services at your firm or a person who wants to use conflict resolution skills in your job.

The 18-credit program, offered primarily online, takes about a year to complete. The program includes a required six-day, on-campus residency. Students who pursue the certificate take five courses with master’s students and may decide to use their credits to complete the master’s degree in mediation.
