Course Description

Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies (P.Grad.Dip.)



This one-year postgraduate course interests those, in both the public and private sectors, who are involved in conflict analysis, management and resolution and who wish to study mediation and other non-adversarial dispute and conflict resolution processes (ADRs). The course aims at achieving standards of best practice for those who recognise the value of alternative dispute resolution processes in resolving commercial, community, workplace, international and other disputes and in minimising the damage caused by conflict. Those who complete the course will have a deep understanding of the causes and nature of conflict, the various conflict resolution processes available and how to apply them. CDRS is an accredited training programme with Mediators Institute of Ireland. Successful completion of an optional MII Mediation Roleplay Competency Assessment at the end of the CDRS programme will allow students to apply for Certified Mediation status with the Mediators Institute of Ireland.

Students undertake 4 modules all worth 15 credits: Understanding Conflict; Aspects and Dynamics of Conflict; Theories and Processes of Conflict Resolution; Processes and Skills for Moving Beyond Conflict. Students are assessed by a combination of two essays, a reflective log and filmed mediation role play. This Postgraduate Diploma course is taught in two evening sessions per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) over 24 teaching weeks between late September and early April. There are also two Saturday mediation training workshops, usually in January-February. MII assessments take place on weekends in April-May. All assessments are to be completed by 1 August.
