Certificate Requirements

The 12-credit, graduate-level CAS in Conflict and Collaboration is an educational program that allows students to engage in the in-depth study of conflict theory, concepts, and skills. To earn the certificate, students complete a required 3-credit course in Fundamentals of Conflict Studies and 9 additional credits of graduate coursework selected from a list of accepted courses or determined with the guidance of a faculty advisor. Students may complete a general program of study, or they may concentrate their classes in one of five specialized areas of study: (1) Applied Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management; (2) Advocacy and Social Movements; (3) Collaborative Governance; (4) Environmental Public Participation and Conflict; or (5) Transnational Conflicts. Online certificate students complete the required course plus 3 specified skills-oriented courses.

Students already in a graduate program can earn the Certificate concurrently with their master’s or doctoral degree. Mid-career managers may complete the CAS as an independent graduate program. The CAS can be completed on campus or online. Please contact the PARCC Office by phone (315.443.2367) or by email (parcc@syr.edu) with questions about the certificate program and how to apply.
