The Conflict Analysis and Management programme offered by the Royal Roads University focuses on both the theory and understanding of the effects of conflict. We provide you with the skills to work with conflict, and we help you create self-awareness of what your role is within that system of conflict and how you can have an impact to make a difference.

About

The Royal Roads approach to conflict analysis and management is unique in that it reflects the full spectrum from interpersonal to international conflict. We view conflict as neither good nor bad, but as a necessary element of all relationships. Conflict exists everywhere and opportunities exist to work with it, change it, and utilize it.

The Conflict Analysis and Management programme offered by the Royal Roads University is a one-year, interdisciplinary graduate program that provides students with foundations to identify, analyze, and manage intra-group and multi-party conflict in a variety of organizational contexts, including domestic, intercultural, and international environments. To accomplish this, the program stresses a holistic, systemic, cross-cultural approach to conflict analysis and management. Students are exposed to a diverse range of relevant practical skills as well as contemporary and innovative, applied research, empowering them to become critical, reflective practitioners that contribute to the expanding field and profession of conflict management.

The majority of this program is experienced through online learning. Online courses enable you to meet the demands of work and family while studying. Using our web-based learning platform, you will access your reading materials, complete individual and group assignments, and engage with the rest of your classmates and instructors; online from anywhere. Each online course will be nine weeks in length, with a two-week break between courses.

Who It’s For

Students in this program come from across Canada and around the globe. Many are, or aspire to be, managers, negotiators, facilitators, or consultants in environments where group conflicts frequently occur. As conflict can occur in many arenas – within community, government, corporations, civil society, and international settings – our graduates are prepared to lead change within the fields of labour relations, community development, environmental management, international NGOs, and many other settings.
