CONTACT Low-residency Graduate Certificate Program
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.
Participants who complete the CONTACT Graduate Certificate program can apply for admittance to one of the following SIT master’s degree programs:
- Master of Arts in Peacebuilding and Conflict Transformation
- Master of Arts in Intercultural Service, Leadership, and Management
If accepted into a master’s degree program, the 14–16 graduate credits earned in the graduate certificate may be applied towards the completion of that degree.
