Program Overview

Program Description:
Conflict resolution professionals work in a range of fields, including business, law, education, health care, and government. They act as arbitrators, mediators, facilitators, ombudsmen, and counselors. They must understand the root causes and dynamics of conflict and how to resolve disputes through reasoned negotiation. Columbia’s master’s program in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution combines theory and applied training to prepare students to develop practical models for negotiating and resolving disputes among parties with differing objectives and desires. Courses examine the psychology of bargaining, coalition development, and value distribution, and they emphasize the importance of organized preparation and establishing process. The graduate program’s training philosophy is grounded in a commitment to interactive, dialogue-based methods of managing and resolving conflict. The focus is on building common ground, establishing dialogue, applying practical skills, ensuring representation and recognition, and forging relationships.
