CADR Minor

The Conflict Analysis & Dispute Resolution (CADR) minor is an interdisciplinary program. The minor involves the completion of 5 courses. Students enrolled in this program will complete a minimum of 3 CADR courses. Individual directed-study courses for various major may be utilized with the approval of the minor advisor.

Why Minor in CADR?

Students have also found that CADR makes an excellent minor to supplement their skills in other disciplines.  Ultimately, CADR students develop strong analytical and practical skills to better understand and respond to conflict dynamics at all levels of human interaction.  Developing skills to better deal with conflict and to understand the dynamics involved will be useful no matter what profession you find yourself in.

We have found that CADR compliments the following areas of study as a minor: Business Administration, Communication Arts, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Environmental Health, Environmental Issues, History, Information Systems, International Studies, Management, Nursing, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology.
