The Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution allows students to develop advanced study and research knowledge, skills and capabilities in conflict resolution.
WHAT THIS PROGRAMME COVERS
There are four core papers that provide students with knowledge, application and understanding of the theories and working practice of the broad field of conflict resolution, psychological aspects of conflict resolution, the social ethics involved at both the macro and micro levels, and advanced research approaches, methodology, design and analysis. The electives allow students to focus on particular contexts, such as, for example, restorative justice in Aotearoa, refugees and displaced persons, gender and sexuality. There will also be an opportunity to include postgraduate papers from other programmes, subject to meeting pre-requisite requirements and approval by the Postgraduate Board of Studies. Students will have the opportunity to follow up on their particular focus in the thesis or dissertation.
