Dispute Management and Resolution Minor - ARCHIVE

University Park, College of the Liberal Arts (D M R)


This interdisciplinary minor administered by the Departments of Communication Arts and Sciences and Labor Studies and Industrial Relations provides students with the opportunity to learn about, and develop skills appropriate to, the management and resolution of problems created by difference in attitudes, beliefs, values, and behavioral preferences of individuals primarily in interpersonal, group, and organizational contexts, and, to a lesser extent, international contexts. The minor is supportive of, and complementary to, work emphasizing conflict and means for dealing with it in such majors as Administration of Justice, Communication Arts and Sciences, Human Development and Family Studies, Labor and Industrial Relations, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Students pursuing the minor must complete nine credits of prescribed course work and nine credits of additional course work distributed across at least two of the eight areas identified below. Of the 18 credits selected, at least nine must be at the 400 level, six must be from Communication Arts and Sciences, and six must be from Labor and Industrial Relations. A maximum of six credits earned in the minor, if appropriate, can be used to satisfy requirements in the Communication Arts and Sciences or Labor and Industrial Relations majors. Only courses in which the student earns a grade of C or better may be counted toward fulfillment of requirements for the minor.
