Master’s Degree in Applied Conflict Management Discussion Groups: $15 Starbucks Gift CardPosted Apr. 15, 2013
Kent State University is developing a master’s degree program in Applied Conflict Management. The master’s degree will be situated under the larger umbrella 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 Applied Conflict Management master’s degree program is to graduate professionals who are equipped to assist others in creating more effective structures, healthier relationships, and more productive decision-making and change creation within families, non-profit 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 resource specialists or customer relations professionals, to name just a few positions.
We are inviting Kent State students and staff members who would consider enrolling in a master’s degree program in Applied Conflict Management in the future to participate in a discussion group. We will talk about what aspects of the degree appeal to you and your professional goals. You will receive a $15 Starbucks gift card, and refreshments will be served. The discussion groups will be held in the Kent Student Center on the following dates from 2:30-4 p.m.
- Monday, April 29
- Tuesday, April 30
- Wednesday, May 1
