          Graduate Certificate in Conflict Management


          Edinboro University’s Graduate Certificate in Conflict Management program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for managing conflict that becomes entrenched in interpersonal, institutional and intercultural relations.

          The six-course (18 credit hour) Conflict Management program is designed to develop competencies that enable individuals and groups to mediate ongoing conflict and negotiate crisis events that impede the realization of goals and objectives, undermine normative practices, and threaten to derail productive human relationships at all levels of communication.
