Certificate in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate (1st program):

The Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution Certificate is premised on the notion that helping people work together to creatively manage conflict will result in more peaceful and just societies, locally and internationally. The UWM College of Letters and Science Peace Studies Program works in collaboration with the Mediation Center, the Conservation and Environmental Science degree, and the Master of Sustainable Peacebuilding degree, and is a member of the Alliance for Peacebuilding.

The purpose of the Certificate in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution is to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to help people work together effectively and to manage their conflicts constructively. As the world becomes evermore interconnected it means that in whatever occupation students pursue, there will be a critical need to help people work through their differences, bridge diverse perspectives, and resolve their conflicts efficiently. Moreover, the cause of building peace in our community, nation and world will depend on our ability to work well together to solve problems and pursue opportunities. The Certificate aims to help students build the foundation in these essential skills.
