International Negotiation & Conflict Resolution

The required course for the International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Field of Study is D220: Processes of International Negotiation. To constitute the field, in addition to D220, a student must choose a minimum of two additional course credits from the list below.

As a reminder, please note:

  • A course may be counted for credit in only one Field of Study.
  • In those cases where a course is listed in more than one Field of Study, the student may choose the Field of Study in which it is to be credited.
  • Courses, however, may be used to meet both Divisional Breadth requirements and Field of Study requirements simultaneously.
