Conflict Resolution Studies
This program explores the nature and dynamics of human conflict and looks at appropriate alternatives for dealing with conflict in ways that develop healthy relationships and prevent violence.
Conflict Resolution Studies is a joint program offered through the cooperation of The University of Winnipeg and Menno Simons College, which is located on the University campus. Conflict Resolution Studies prepares students to understand and interact constructively in response to personal, local, and global conflict situations. Topics include violence, power, justice, peace, communication, and dispute resolution.
Conflict Resolution Studies is an interdisciplinary program that allows you to customize your university education to fit your educational and career goals. A Major in Conflict Resolution Studies can be combined with a Major in another area of study such as Psychology, Business, Politics, Religious Studies, Sociology, Criminal Justice, or International Development Studies.
Senior students learn to apply academic theory and skills to “real world” situations through the practicum program. Students volunteer in a supervised work placement within the structure of a local, national, or international organization and gain practical work experience related to their program of study.
