Master’s Degree in Applied Conflict Management Survey

Posted Oct. 14, 2013

Kent State University is developing a master’s degree program in applied conflict management on the Kent Campus. The master’s degree will be situated in the larger field of peace and conflict studies, which examines the causes and consequences of violence, develops methods for resolving conflicts, and analyzes the values and institutions of peace.

The goal of the master’s degree program is to graduate professionals equipped to assist others in creating more effective structures, healthier relationships, and more productive decision-making and change processes in families, nonprofit agencies, businesses, governments and communities.

Graduates could work as diplomats, in human rights organizations, as officials in international or community development agencies or groups, as mediators or arbitrators, as ombudspersons, as in-house conflict specialists for corporations, school systems or other organizations, or as human resources specialists or customer relations professionals, to name just a few positions.

If you are considering enrolling in a master’s degree program in applied conflict management within five years and would like to learn more about Kent State’s proposed program, please visit by Oct. 25 to take our five-minute survey.
