Global Conflict, Certificate
The University of Akron has a long history of the interdisciplinary study of conflict, because understanding the nature of conflict is the first step toward reducing conflict and violence at home, in our communities, workplaces, and schools. This graduate certificate, jointly administered by the departments of Political Science and Sociology, will build on that tradition to enhance the capacity of students to effectively work toward reducing the harms associated with global conflict and violence.
