Programme Overview

This programme will challenge traditional views of conflict, and encourage students to develop a reflective, theory-based approach to the application of conflict management skills, and in particular mediation. Practical instruction and exercises will take place within a theoretical framework, and students will take an active part in their learning.

This postgraduate programme combines evening lectures and weekend workshops with online learning, self-directed study and practical exercises. In Year Two students will select a topic of interest on which to prepare a research dissertation. The programme workshops are delivered at St. Angela’s College.
