Conflict Resolution Studies (CRS)
Academic Departments and Programs
Are you interested in helping others deal with conflict?
Conflict Resolution Studies (CRS) teaches about the nature and dynamics of human conflict. CRS prepares students to understand and interact constructively in response to personal, local, and global conflict situations.
The CRS program is an interdisciplinary major that explores topics of violence, power, justice, peace, communication, culture, war, conflict transformation, and dispute resolution. Through lectures, skill building workshops, and practicum opportunities, students will discover alternative ways to develop healthy relationships and prevent violence.
CRS is offered jointly by Menno Simons College and the University of Winnipeg. A CRS major can be taken alone or it can be effectively combined such as Business Administration, Economics, Environmental Studies, International Development Studies, Politics, or Sociology.
