Study Conflict Resolution in a Low-Residency Setting
The Conflict Analysis and Engagement program allows participants to study the field of conflict resolution and to build knowledge and skills in this dynamic field.
With faculty guidance, students engage in dynamic graduate courses that bring depth to the student’s area of interest in the conflict resolution field. This flexibility enables students to leverage and integrate past experience and knowledge from their personal and professional lives through a Master of Arts degree. The Conflict Analysis and Engagement program at Antioch University Midwest is a low-residency, hybrid model which enables students to complete coursework from any location.
Many students enter the program after substantial experience in a specific field. In this master’s degree program, students maximize current knowledge or interest as they explore the conflict resolution field with a new lens of analysis and engagement.
"Because of Antioch, I am more aware of where I draw meaning from in my life and I am much more aware of other people’s perspectives. My experience at Antioch University Midwest definitely pushed me to grow.”

Low Residency Benefits
Residencies are an important component of the coursework.
The residencies contribute to the development of a learning community, which helps to sustain the student during the at-home portion of the academic program.
The low residency model provides the:
- Ability to participate from home or anywhere in the world that has Internet access
- Opportunity to complete a graduate program while continuing to meet obligations to family, work and community

Residencies are frequently hosted on AUM's campus in Yellow Springs and have also been hosted at venues such as Grailville in Loveland, Ohio, a retreat center located 35 miles from Cincinnati.
