The successful candidate will be joining the well-established graduate program in Negotiations and Conflict Management (CNCM), an applied, cross-disciplinary Masters of Science program in the School of Public and International Affairs. The CNCM program is designed to expose students to conflict management in a variety of settings from the interpersonal to the international. The program’s 42-credit curriculum is delivered through a series of applied courses that enable students to see the link between conflict management theory and practice and prepares them for post-graduate success in a variety of settings in which conflict management skills are necessary.
