The Swiss Center for Conflict Research, Management, and Resolution at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem offer a prestigious one-year MA program taught in English.
The program allows students to explore the fields of conflict transformation, resolution, problem-solving, and negotiations. Students are exposed to theories and practices of managing and resolving domestic and external conflicts in general, and in Israel in particular. The methods, techniques, and strategies that can help manage and resolve conflicts are studied from different disciplinary points of view, including political science, international relations, social psychology, international law, communication, digital media, sociology, and Israel studies.
The program includes theoretical and methodological courses and seminars, as well as workshops through which students acquire skills for conflict management and resolution, and lectures of leading academics and professionals in the field. Through its unique setting and location, the program also offers ‘hands-on’ experiential learning - encountering and following the tracks of conflict and diversity, through study tours, practical ‘on-site’ training, and meetings with key people, including policymakers, political leaders, activists and more.
Studying conflict resolution in Israel and at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem provides a unique opportunity for those interested in the field and a diverse environment that includes students from different nationalities and religions. In the first year that the program has been running, we have had students from different academic backgrounds who came from Brazil, Canada, China, Dominican Republic, Spain, South Africa, East Jerusalem, and the USA.
Only twenty of the many applicants for the Swiss Center Masters program in Conflict Research, Management and Resolution are accepted, based on their grade average and field of study. Most of the Center's students come from the Hebrew University with others from Tel Aviv University, Haifa University, Ben-Gurion University, Bar Ilan University, and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. However, some of our students come from universities abroad, including Yale, Brandeis, George Washington University, McGill, SOAS, Northwestern, The University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Maryland. The Swiss Center students also come from a wide variety of disciplines, including International Relations, Political Science, English Literature, Psychology, Communication and Journalism, Law, General Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, Islamic Studies, History, and Linguistics.
