Housed in the Department of Government, the two-year multidisciplinary Master of Arts program in Conflict Resolution accepted its first cohort of students in the 2005-2006 academic year. The program has established itself as a world-class conflict resolution program. The Conflict Resolution Program addresses interpersonal, intergroup, and interstate conflict, using methods, practices, and processes to transform the way conflict is approached and resolved.

The program's strength resides in its multidisciplinary core courses, housed in different departments across the university, as well as multidisciplinary elective courses that equip students with both a theoretical lense and practical skills. The program places a strong emphasis on conflict mainstreaming, which trains students to apply conflict resolution skills and analysis across diverse sectors in both domestic and international settings ranging from humanitarian relief, development, and corporate social responsibility to youth development, gender, race, and the health sector.  

Since its inception, the Conflict Resolution Program has rapidly developed an impressive national and international reputation. Students graduating from the program have established successful careers in government and non-governmental organizations, the non-profit sector, and private sector businesses.
