Conflict is an inevitable part of life, but it doesn’t have to be a barrier to success when handled effectively, efficiently and respectfully. Lipscomb University’s Conflict Management program empowers you to explore the building blocks of dispute resolution, examine problems in negotiation and mediation, and develop processes for solving complex issues in the face of conflict. These skills are employed to cope with or mitigate conflict by peaceful means and to establish justice for all people. Ultimately, conflict management is the means by which we pursue a better world. The Master of Arts in Conflict Management and the Conflict Management Graduate Certificate program are available in a hybrid format at our Nashville campus location.
