Brandeis Master's Program in Coexistence and Conflict

"If a person is seeking to get an MA in this field, this program
perfectly ties
theory to practice and does it in a way that is amenable to adult lives
and needs."

The newest thinking about contemporary theories of conflicts, and the
interventions that can address them at local, regional and global
