Conflict Management Certificate

Boise State offers two academic certificate programs for people interested in improving their ability to effectively manage conflict with others.

The graduate-level 12-credit Conflict Management Certificate Program focuses on developing knowledge and skills in interpersonal conflict management, group and intercultural conflict management, negotiation, and mediation.

Both Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management are certificate programs. That is, students who have both completed a program and earned a college degree receive a certificate of completion from Boise State University. Additionally, Boise State lists completed certificate programs on University transcripts.

Faculty in both programs have professional experience as both university teachers and conflict management practitioners. Almost all have earned Certified Professional Mediator status through the Idaho Mediation Association.

Please Note

Students who have earned an associate’s degree may take the Dispute Resolution Certificate Program by itself. For students pursuing a bachelor’s degree, the Certificate Program is taken concurrently and the Certificate is awarded after students complete their degree.
