The International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation is a one year interdisciplinary MA program taught in English with an optional thesis track. Students graduate with a Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution and Mediation. The program provides students with tools for effective analysis, negotiation strategies, and conflict resolution frameworks in the international arena. Students also earn a certificate issued by Tel Aviv University for completing the program’s workshop in International Mediation.


The International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation was launched as an English language program in 2009, based on the existing Hebrew language program in Conflict Management and Mediation which was established in 2003. This program took a unique interdisciplinary approach to the teaching of conflict theory and practise looking at the spectrum of conflict situations around the world.  


Both the English and Hebrew programs are in partnership with The Tel Aviv University Center for Mediation. The Center was founded with the objective of providing professional mediation services to individuals, organizations, and communities while basing its practices on theoretical and practical academic research. In addition, the Center is a database, accumulating the knowledge and accomplishments made in this field in Israel and the world. For more information on the Center, please click here (website in Hebrew only).

About the Gershon H. Gordon Faculty of Social Sciences
The Social Sciences study collective aspects of the human experience as revealed in culture and the many forms of social organization. Since its founding in 1964, the Faculty of Social Sciences at Tel Aviv University set itself the goal of furthering our understanding of social forms in general and of Israeli society, in particular.

Comprising over 20 percent of Tel Aviv University's student enrollment, the Faculty of Social Science is the most heterogeneous faculty, with links to such diverse areas as neurosciences (cognitive and biopsychology), mathematics (economic theory), cultural studies (anthropology), and philosophy (political thought). Under the broad umbrella of social sciences scholars at Tel Aviv University study such varied topics as comparative political institutions; international relations; immigration and social rights; risk and decision making; markets and contracts; the effect of electronic media and its regulation; sustainable growth; work and organizations; stress and its regulation; perception and memory.
