Dispute Management and Conflict Resolution
This interdisciplinary minor is administered by the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences and the School of Labor and Employment Relations. It has as specific learning objectives (1) the development of skills appropriate to the management and resolution of problems created by difference in attitudes, power, beliefs, values, and behavioral preferences of individuals and (2) learning how to apply these skills across multiple contexts, including interpersonal, group, and organizational contexts, and, to a lesser extent, international contexts. The minor draws from the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences and the School of Labor and Employment Relations to provide broad theoretical foundations that address conflict and means for dealing with it, while also allowing for the opportunity to focus on particular subject matter suited to students’ interests.
