Final Project and Workshop

Students design projects that integrate the knowledge and skills acquired during their training. Projects take a wide variety of forms, including 1) empirical research; 2) apprenticeships with professionals or agencies; 3) evaluations and/or analyses of existing practices; 4) the creation of new dispute resolution programs or curricula, tailored to specific, identified, unmet needs; and 5) other projects proposed by students which meet the project criteria. Each project culminates in a work product, such as a research paper or written account of the applied project that demonstrates substantial progress beyond previous learning. The accompanying seminar brings together all students working on master's projects to share their field experience, learn new methods needed for their projects (e.g., research skills, intervention techniques), discuss literature covered in previous courses, and plan for their future learning as dispute resolvers.
