Study conflict resolution at Auckland University of Technology and learn to identify causes of conflict, and develop practical negotiation, mediation, and facilitation skills.
Conflict resolution is an essential skill in many fields. Wherever there are people, companies, or states, there are differences.
Conflict resolution explores how to overcome these differences and reach a peaceful settlement at an interpersonal, community, organizational and international level.
You learn through case studies, role-play scenarios, and visits from guest speakers who share their views on current issues and approaches.
The university's passionate lecturers draw from international experiences and include best practice models.
Conflict Resolution is also available as a minor.
Courses cover multidisciplinary perspectives on conflict resolution and a wide range of examples including the Treaty of Waitangi.
This major draws on the disciplines of psychology, political studies, and sociology.
Workplace experience is an important part of your degree, and the Work Integrated Learning course is the final part of your degree.
This is a supervised work placement related to your major(s), for an organization of your choice.
It's a great way to get industry experience while still being able to get feedback from AUT lecturers, and for many of AUT's students, this workplace experience also leads to a job offer.
