A master’s degree can open otherwise closed doors in a student’s career path and provide additional educational growth. The degree is also a necessary requirement for those pursuing a PhD, or for certain field specialties.

What is a Master in Dispute Resolution? The program teaches effective business management and conflict resolution. Students learn to use this knowledge to resolve problems with individuals, companies, large groups and even internationally. Foundational courses on ethics, mediation and negotiation can then be expanded on with courses tailored to the individual student. Possible course choices include sociology, international business, psychology and economics. Most programs may be completed in one to two years and do not require a law degree or LSAT.

Learn how to mediate, arbitrate and negotiate with this degree program. While these skills are excellent for conflict resolution, a student can also utilize these skills in the workplace and while interviewing for positions, negotiating salary increases and buying large ticket items like houses, just to touch on a few possibilities.

The financial commitment of program participants depends on the program selected. Investigating the programs available will answer most financial questions a prospective student has before making a decision.

A Master in Dispute Resolution often benefits anyone interested in the public or private sector. Alternative dispute resolution jobs are available both domestically and internationally for anyone seeking to implement these practices into his or her business or organization. Mediators, arbitrators or conciliators are all viable career positions for graduates. Many related positions are available for pursuit in government organizations and courtrooms or those seeking to avoid court, like divorce mediation. Additionally, the degree can open doors for those looking into a legal profession without a law degree.
