For more than 30 years, faculty, students, and alumni of the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University have been committed to addressing justice and peace issues through rigorous academic programs and innovative research and practice. Our undergraduate program offers a B.A., B.S., minor, and Accelerated Master’s degree. Undergraduates learn to address deep-rooted conflicts and work toward their resolution at the interpersonal, community/organizational, and global levels. Students analyze conflict from multiple perspectives and pursue a uniquely designed concentration of elective courses chosen from across the humanities and social sciences.
Experiential learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, internships, and extracurricular activities are enhanced by our proximity to the nation’s capital and provide students the opportunity to gain practical, real-world experience in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Our focus on developing students’ abilities in analysis, writing, inquiry, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills equips graduates with sought-after job skills and prepares them for placement in a wide variety of careers and graduate programs in business, law, government and public administration, international policy and diplomacy, education, community and global development, health, and the social sciences.
