The Master's Program in Conflict Resolution and Coexistence at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management focuses on the challenges posed by intercommunal and societal conflicts in today's world. Bringing greater professional policy and practical expertise and leadership to bear upon these challenges is the goal. Since its inception in 2004, the program has become the preferred choice of midcareer professionals who want and need to understand how better to prevent, manage and resolve such conflicts. The curriculum of the Master's Program in Conflict Resolution and Coexistence ensures that participants will secure a solid grounding in the theories of contemporary conflict resolution and coexistence work, as well as develop the professional skills to design and implement successful interventions to deal with the challenges of such conflicts. The sixteen-month program involves an academic year in residence studying at Brandeis, followed by a three-month field placement and the completion of a master's field project. The Heller School offers a dual MA with the program in sustainable international development and a dual MA/MBA in nonprofit management.
