The Applied Conflict Management minor gives students a solid background in the theory and skills of managing conflicts in constructive ways. Students learn applied, real-life skills that are not only useful in a variety of workplace settings, but in everyday life and relationships as well. Applied conflict management is an especially useful minor when paired with psychology, criminology and justice studies, communication studies, political science and business majors. However, because the skills taught are life skills, this minor matches up well with many other majors as well.
