Conflict Resolution: Negotiation, Mediation and Arbitration (3 crs)

Designed to introduce learners to the study of ADR or Alternative dispute resolution, this course explores the resolution of conflict through negotiation, mediation and arbitration.  A variety of approaches for resolving conflict are examined, from the adjudicative (arbitration, private or special judging, neutral fact-finding), to the evaluative (peer, lay, judicial, and expert evaluation) to the meditative. Emphasis is given to the meditative process and its usefulness in a wide range of venues. Learners will be given multiple opportunities to integrate theory and practice in the development of conflict resolution skills. 

Prerequisite: Concurrent or prior enrollment in Liberal Studies 203 or department consent.
