The Graduate Certificate in Conflict Transformation is a one-year, low-residency professional development program offering 14–16 graduate credits. Through a combination of face-to-face and distance learning, participants develop theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to design and manage programs that transform conflict and promote reconciliation for individuals and communities torn by violent conflict. This model minimizes time away from jobs and families while maintaining an international learning community and the experiential learning pedagogy characteristic of SIT Graduate Institute.
Students who complete the certificate program may be eligible to count the program toward a portion of a master's degree at SIT.
