Taught in English, the International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation of Tel Aviv University is a 10-month (three semester) full-time program open to students interested in developing their knowledge and skills in the field of dispute resolution. There is an optional thesis track which extends the program to a second year.


As the Conflict Resolution and Mediation programme of Tel Aviv University  is interdisciplinary in nature, we accept applicants from a wide variety of academic backgrounds which reflect the interdisciplinary interest in conflict resolution around the world. Accepted students have come from academic fields as disparate as: Political Science, International Relations, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, History, Cultural Studies, Fine Arts, Business Administration, Law, and more.


There are no specific professional profiles that would require this particular degree in the sense that specific degrees are required to be a lawyer or a physician. However, understanding negotiation and conflict resolution is a core necessity and asset for any profession that includes sustaining relationships and other dynamics of interpersonal, organizational, community-based, international and intercultural life.

The following are good examples of works that suit conflict professionals: Trainers, consultants, organizational conflict design specialists, human resource managers, mediators and arbitrators, community development and equal opportunity advocates, violence intervention and prevention professionals or community peacemakers.


The program is accredited by the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Council for Higher Education. In the United States, Tel Aviv University programs participates with the Department of Education’s FFEL Program.
