INSTITUTE FOR CONFLICT ANALYSIS AND RESOLUTION (ICAR)
FAIRFAX , VA

http://www.gmu.edu/departments/ICAR/ICAR


About the program

Starting in Fall 2004, the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) and the College of Arts and Sciences will initiate a major in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University . The program will be the first major in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at a Virginia public institution, as well as the first in the Washington DC Metro area.

 

The Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) at George Mason University has been a pioneer in the field since ICAR's inception in 1981. ICAR offered the first doctoral program in the field in North America , and its faculty continue to be at the forefront of teaching and research. ICAR has a diverse, interdisciplinary teaching community, that includes professors with backgrounds in law, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, sociology and religion. In addition, the major will utilize the interdisciplinary strengths and focus of GMU, NCC and CAS. Included in the program are College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) courses from a variety of disciplines. These CAS faculty members will bring expertise in each discipline to the study of conflict.

 

What is "Conflict Analysis and Resolution?"

Conflict occurs in many contexts, from a vehement dispute between two individuals to a cycle of violence between two ethnic groups. Conflict analysis and resolution is committed to analyzing the sources of conflict, the ways in which conflict changes over time, and the means for resolution towards meaningful and lasting peace. The field of conflict resolution is a inter-and multi-disciplinary field, founded in the 1950s and 1960s. The last ten years have seen exponential growth in the number of degree programs and courses offered in universities worldwide, as well as demand by employers for applicants with conflict analysis and resolution skills.

 

The Undergraduate B.A. or B.S. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution (CAR)

All CAR students take a series of core courses that ground them in conflict theory and analysis. Students will also learn practical conflict resolution skills. Students take a series of gateway courses, which cover conflict resolution in the arenas of interpersonal conflict, group/community conflict, and international conflict. After selecting an arena of conflict as a concentration, students choose courses from a variety of disciplines throughout the university that relate to their concentration. The major also requires three credits of field work, which can take the form of an internship, a service learning opportunity, or study abroad.

PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY
Portland

http://www.conflictresolution.pdx.edu/contact.html

The Conflict Resolution Program offers a Master of Arts/Sciences Degree, which draws from (and contributes to) theories and insights in the arts and sciences, as well as preparing students for professional work. The program's three current areas of emphasis are: Theory and Practice, Peace and Justice, and International and Intercultural Conflict Resolution. For admission to graduate study, the student's background and preparation should reflect an ability to pursue graduate work in conflict resolution. It is not required that the applicant have an undergraduate specialization in conflict resolution or any other specific academic discipline. Because the program is broadly interdisciplinary, students with any undergraduate degree are encouraged to apply for admission. Should the student's preparation be deemed inadequate in certain areas, the student will be required to overcome those deficiencies through formal coursework and/or directed readings. All such work is separate from work toward the master's degree.

Peace, War, and Diplomacy Studies

B.A. Program in Peace, War and Diplomacy Studies

 

Program coordinator: Asst. Professor R. Pennington

 

The purpose of a baccalaureate program in Peace, War, and Diplomacy Studies is to offer an opportunity to examine, within a liberal and humanistic framework, the origins and development of military institutions and the impact of those institutions upon the social order. Intellectually, the program is intended to promote critical analysis of phenomena relating to military and diplomatic affairs. Practically, the program is especially intended to help prepare students for a career in government service or for entry into graduate or professional school. Professional military training is not a requisite part of this curriculum. Rather, this academic program aims at providing an interdisciplinary examination of the enduring and close interconnections among military, political, economic, and social institutions. The creation of a program in Peace, War, and Diplomacy Studies at Norwich University, an institution which has long combined the best assets of a liberal education and military training, can be viewed as an extension of a venerable tradition of producing educated citizens who are prepared for their civilian pursuits and who are knowledgeable about diplomatic and military affairs.
